‘Empleos verdes’ están redefiniendo rápidamente los roles de trabajo tradicionales y al mismo tiempo la creación de nuevas profesiones en una amplia gama de sectores como la construcción, el transporte, el suministro de energía, la ingeniería y la ciencia. En particular, han surgido como una respuesta a los desafíos globales vinculados a protección del medio ambiente, el desarrollo económico y la inclusión social.

The ‘Environmental Goods and Services Sector’ (EGSS) represents approximately 2% of total EU employment. It continues to grow across the EU, despite the current economic crisis. In addition, the European Commission’s ‘Employment Package’ (April 2012) identified the green economy as a key source of job creation and estimated that it could create 20 million new jobs by 2020.
According to the EU’s growth strategy (‘Europe 2020’), one of the key ongoing structural transformations to achieve ‘smart, inclusive and sustainable’ growth is the transition towards a green, low-carbon and resource-efficient economy. To this end, the ‘Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe’ (September 2011), which is part of the Resource Efficiency Flagship of the Europe 2020 Strategy, proposes ways to increase resource productivity and decouple economic growth from resource use and its environmental impact by 2050.
In its effort to meet this aim and to tackle the unprecedented unemployment rates, the EU has a pivotal role to play in fostering skills suitable for ‘green jobs’, promoting mobility and supporting industrial restructuring, in close cooperation with the social partners and the businesses. To achieve this, the integration of environmental and employment policies represents a great challenge for the ‘Europe 2020’ Strategy.
In July 2014, the Commission published the ‘Green Employment Initiative’ Communication, in order to underpin the employment challenges and opportunities towards the transition to the model of a ‘green economy’. This communication complemented the ones on the ‘Circular Economy’ and on a ‘Green Action Plan for SMEs’, and presented an integrated framework for employment and labour market polices at EU and national levels, highlighting the significance
• Securing labour market transitions
• Anticipating and establishing adequate skills policies to assist workers to adapt to
• Making governance and partnership-based initiatives stronger
This timely international symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for delegates to examine the future of green growth in Europe by focusing on its economic, social and financial aspects. Delegates will explore how future skills-needs can be better anticipated to suit the market and how the green economy can be boosted by investing in green technologies and eco-innovation.
“The shift to a green and resource efficient economy is above all an opportunity to increase European global competitiveness and create sustainable and high quality jobs. The Green Employment initiative will help ensure that environmental and employment policies converge and play an active role in supporting this process.
European Commissioner for the Environment, July 2014
