The Macro View: Net Zero & The future of Labour Markets

The green transition will trigger significant structural change in labour markets. No sector will remain unchanged. This session maps the jobs and skills of the future, analysing how macrotrends as well as technology adoption are likely to reconfigure labour markets and shape the demand for jobs and skills in developed and frontier economies.

10:30

Spotlight on the UK

The UK has become the first major economy to halve its carbon emissions, with data compiled by the Global Carbon Project showing that UK CO2 emissions are now down 52% on the peak in the 1970s. While green businesses and jobs in the country are booming, future growth and progress is being put at risk by government policy reversals, lack of investment and competition from the EU and US.

Gender & the Green Transition, Boon or Barrier?

This session explores the potential for the green transition to exacerbate gender inequality. While millions of new green jobs emerge, women, especially women of colour, are absent from these growing sectors. We will discuss strategies to ensure the green revolution empowers women and dismantles existing barriers to entry.
