The ILO initiated the Green Jobs Global Programme in 2009 to promote opportunity, equity and a just transition to a green economy and inclusive growth for the world of work. The programme encourages governments, employers and workers to collaborate on generating coherent policies and effective programmes that will lead to decent work for all in a greener economy.

Green jobs are central to sustainable development and respond to the global challenges of environmental protection, economic development and social inclusion. By engaging governments, workers and employers as active agents of change, the ILO promotes the greening of enterprises, workplace practices and the labour market as a whole. These efforts create decent employment opportunities, enhance resource efficiency and build low-carbon sustainable societies.
