UN Report: Green economic growth means a surge in jobs worldwide

14 May 2018

If countries honour the Paris Agreement pledge on global warming of keeping temperature rises below 2 degrees Celsius, “we will see a net job creation of 18 million new jobs around the world.”

That’s according to Guillermo Montt, Senior Economist at the research department of the International Labour Organization (ILO).  He was at the launch of ILO’s World Employment and Social Outlook 2018 report, at UN Headquarters in Geneva this week, where he spoke to Alpha Diallo.
