All jobs will be affected as the EU moves to a green economy: new jobs will be created and some will be eliminated, but most existing jobs will be transformed. To ensure a socially responsible transition towards high-quality green jobs, concerted efforts by governments, employees, employers and other stakeholders are crucial in anticipating and managing this process. The research carried out in this study examined green business practices and greening processes aimed at mitigating climate change – if radical mitigation measures are not taken in time, adaptation could eventually prove impossible. The study had two main objectives: to provide an overview at both sectoral and cross-sectoral level in the EU of the effects of greening on the quantity and quality of jobs in 10 sectors (automotive, chemicals, construction, distribution and trade, energy, furniture, nonmetallic materials, shipbuilding, textiles and transport); and to analyse good practice examples of the anticipation and management of green change at company level in these sectors.

    Ekologiškos pramonės kūrimas ES: poveikio darbo vietų skaičiui ir kokybei numatymas ir valdymas - Santrauka

    Autorius (-ai): 
    Eurofound
    ES pereinant prie ekologiškos ekonomikos modelio, darbas neatpažįstamai pasikeis, nes įmonės vadovaujasi praktika, kuria siekia sumažinti savo įtaką klimato kaitai. Siekdami užtikrinti, kad esamos darbo vietos socialiai atsakingu būdu būtų pertvarkytos į aukštus kokybės standartus atitinkančias ekologiškas darbo vietas, vyriausybės, darbdaviai ir darbuotojai privalo numatyti ir valdyti šį perėjimo procesą. Šiame tyrime apžvelgiamas ES perėjimo prie ekologiškos ekonomikos modelio poveikis darbo vietų skaičiui ir kokybei 10 pramonės sektorių, vertinant pokyčius pavieniuose ir keliuose sektoriuose iš karto. Jame taip pat analizuojami šiuose sektoriuose veikiančiose įmonėse vykstančių su ekologija susijusių pokyčių numatymo ir valdymo gerosios patirties pavyzdžiai. Remiantis šio tyrimo išvadomis ir atžvelgiant į turimus įrodymus, galima teigti, kad perėjimas prie ekologiškos ekonomikos modelio lig šiol nepadarė didelio poveikio darbo vietoms ir kad didžiausią poveikį šis procesas turėjo darbuotojų įgūdžių lavinimui.
