by Rutovitz, Jay | Atherton, Alison | Short, Rebecca | Teske, Sven.

Publisher: Amsterdam Greenpeace 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Working for the Climate is a study to determine the potential for 'green jobs' in the energy sector, and how this potential compares to a business-as-usual approach, with little or no action being taken to avert climate change. We found that, under the Energy [R]evolution scenario, there would be an overall increase of around 2 million power sector jobs over the next 20 years; and with an Energy [R]evolution in place, there would be more than 8 million jobs in renewable energy and energy efficiency - three times the amount of jobs under the business-as-usual approach.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
