The measures taken in the world, aimed at the transition to an ecologically clean economy and the retention of global warming within 2 degrees Celsius, will create 24 million new jobs by 2030, according to the report of the International Labor Organization. The authors of the report recommend that countries provide social protection for those who are engaged in the oil or coal industries that may suffer losses. New jobs will appear in the energy sector through the transition to electric vehicles and energy efficiency of buildings, as well as in industries related to air, water and soil purification, and protected from extreme weather conditions. According to ILO experts, the largest growth in the “green” labor market is expected in Asia, where 14 million jobs can be created. Experts expect that the European market can add 2 million seats.
