Greening world of work is the future: UN labour chief

Decent “green” jobs are the future and they must be placed at the heart of the sustainable development agenda, the chief of the International Labour Organization (ILO) said on Monday.

Guy Ryder made the remarks during the opening of the 106th Session of the International Labour Conference (ILC) in Geneva.

He also introduced ILO’s latest report to the ILC entitled “Work in a changing climate: The Green Initiative”.
