Links between the Environment, Economy and Jobs

— theme: Employment and socio-economic policies, Environment and climate

The study shows that there are strong links between the economy and the environment. These go far beyond the narrow definition of eco-industries traditionally measured. A good quality environment supports many sectors in the economy. At its broadest, the environment is linked to around 21 million jobs and over a trillion Euros of economic activity in Europe. The study includes analysis of the impact of environmental policies on jobs and employment. Policies to ensure the protection of our environment seem unlikely to provide a drag on the economy, and may easily prove to be a source of new jobs and innovation, a driver of progress, and ultimately help increase the health of our economies and wellbeing of societies.
