The greening of industries: anticipating and managing change

Research on the employment effects of greening of industries largely focuses on job quantity, while effects on job quality are less frequently addressed. This project will provide an overview of how companies anticipate and manage the effects of greening of industries on job quality, what the role of skills development is in this context and the contribution of governments in facilitating the overall development of a workforce for a green economy.

The project is based on results of an online survey, interviews and 48 company case studies carried out in the following ten target sectors: automotive, chemicals, construction, distribution and trade, energy, furniture, nonmetallic materials, shipbuilding, textiles and transport.
