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.

About the Author:

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
