Project Description

Job Creation within the Green Economy

As ESG imperatives place an increased focus on sustainability and drive a transition towards a green economy, the impacts will be felt in the labour market.

An understanding of how this transition will cause shifts in the volume, type, and quality of employment opportunities across sectors is essential.  Will the green economy create more and better jobs?
