A message on Green jobs, sustainable development and decent work

ILC 2013 - During the closing session of the ILC 102, the Director General stated that "the role that the ILO will be called upon to play in the transition to a low-carbon, sustainable development path is the single factor that will most clearly distinguish the Organization’s second century of activity from its first. That means that the green initiative will need to be at the heart of what we do and in all areas of ILO activity, with the post-2015 agenda very much in mind here as well".

The role the ILO must take up is easily stated in conceptual terms: to promote the considerable potential for creation of decent work associated with the transition to a low-carbon sustainable development path and to minimize and manage the inevitable dislocation that will accompany it"
