The future of our planet depends on the world economy’s rapid transition to “green growth” – modes of production based on clean technologies that significantly reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Yet carbon remains badly mispriced, owing to fossil-fuel subsidies and the absence of tax revenues needed to address the global externalities of climate change.
Birgit Kraemer (2009.09.18): "Greening the European Economy: responses and initiatives by Member States and social partners", http://www.eurofound.europa.eu/eiro/studies/tn0908019s/de0908019q.htm The economic stimulus packages, which are a comprise by the Christian-Democratic and Social-Democratic government, provide some incentives for energy reduction and climate protection, , but an increase in green jobs is not a specific objective. Whereas the Confederation of German Trade Unions has some years of history in conceptualising ecological industrial restructuring and green job creation, currently, as of May 2009, there are no new major initiatives by neither the trade unions nor the employers’ organisations to promote green jobs.
This report examines the responses, initiatives and activities undertaken by national governments and the social partners in the EU Member States plus Norway in working towards a greener economy and maximising the job creation potential of this new area. The report looks specifically at various measures undertaken by governments with a view to stimulating the economy in the current context of the global economic crisis. It also charts the growing awareness of the importance of reducing carbon dioxide emissions and developing alternative energy sources, showing that both governments and social partners in most countries in this study are active in trying to promote the ‘green agenda’.The scope of such initiatives includes renewable energy production (including tidal, solar and wind power), energy efficiency, sustainable transport, water supply, waste management and sustainable agriculture. The report also aims to identify particularly interesting and successful initiatives that can be shared and disseminated as good practice examples.
The study was compiled on the basis of individual national reports submitted by the EIRO correspondents. The text of each of these national reports is available below. The national reports were drawn up in response to a questionnaire and should be read in conjunction with it.
