Report: The impact of climate change and environmental change on the labour market
We can no longer deny that dealing with climate change is the greatest challenge of our century. Every day we witness the effects of climate change, often with a sense of dismay.
Our economies and societies are directly affected by this climate change, which we know is now irreversible. Labour markets and employment are undergoing a double transformation: the first is the decarbonisation of the economy that many countries have already embarked on, and the second is all the consequences of climate disasters, which are becoming more frequent and more intense by the day.
To address the issue of the impact of climate change on the labour market in the most comprehensive way possible, and to reflect on the measures needed to prevent or support such major effects, it is first and foremost necessary to take a systematic look at the various dimensions of this phenomenon. That’s the main aim of this report, which has been compiled from a variety of sources and perspectives.
