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.

    AB’deki sanayilerin çevre dostu hale getirilmesi: İşlerin niceliği ve niteliği üzerindeki etkilerin öngörülmesi ve yönetilmesi - Yönetici özeti

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    AB’de çevreci ekonomiye geçiş, işletmelerin iklim değişikliğine katkılarına azaltmak için uygulamalar yapması nedeniyle işlerde dönüşüm yaşanmasına yol açacaktır. Yüksek kaliteli çevreci işlere sosyal sorumluluk çerçevesinde geçişin sağlanması için, işverenler ve çalışanlar çevreci süreci öngörmeli ve yönetmelidir. Bu çalışma, AB’de sektörel ve sektörler arası seviyede, çevre dostu olmanın 10 sektörde iş niceliği ve niteliği üzerindeki etkileri hakkında genel bir bakış sağlamaktadır. Ayrıca, bu sektörlerde çevre dostu olmaya yönelik değişikliğin öngörülmesi ve yönetimi ile ilgili iyi uygulama örneklerini analiz etmektedir. Çalışmaya göre, çevre dostu olmanın işler üzerindeki etkisi şimdilik orta derecede olup en büyük etki beceri gelişiminde görülmüştür.
