Index results suggest that China possesses the most favorable conditions overall for green job creation, followed by Japan and India, whereas other economies can build on potential in specific areas. Economies should address specific deficiencies that hinder green job development by identifying business opportunities, improving workforce capability, and implementing coherent government policies to foster green job growth.
