This book argues that employment that contributes to protecting the environment and reducing humanity's carbon footprint―green jobs―can be a key economic driver as the world steps into the still largely uncharted territory of building a sustainable and low-carbon global economy. With specific experiences and macroeconomic studies, this book documents that positive outcomes are eminently possible. However, these require a clear understanding of the opportunities and challenges, as well as country-specific policies that integrate environmental, social, and decent work elements to ensure a smooth and just transition process.

Peter Poschen is the Director of Job Creation and Enterprise Development at the International Labor Organization (ILO). He has over 25 years' experience in international sustainable development, with a focus on the social dimensions of the use of natural resources.Review:
This book focuses on two enormous challenges that we face in the 21st century - environmental sustainability and social and economic stability shaped by decent work for all. All in all, Poschen provides a good read supported by real-world, empirical examples that will give hope to the skeptics of a sustainable economy. -- Kristin M. Carter, AAPG: Spheres of Influence
