UNEP supports new European report on Green Jobs


“Investing For The Future: More jobs out of a greener EU budget”

More than half a million jobs could be created in Europe if 14% of the next EU budget for 2014-20 invested in green sectors such as renewable energy and nature protection, a group of environmental groups said in a new report.

Mr Fulai Sheng, Senior Economist with the UNEP's Green Economy Initiative, welcomed the report today the 8th of February saying, "The findings provide much needed analysis for EU policy makers to bolster the engine of job creation"
