The Greener Jobs Alliance promotes skills training and job creation to grow low carbon sectors and green the whole economy.

Transition to a zero-carbon and resource-efficient economy drives sustainable economic recovery and job creation and makes existing jobs more secure. This requires a strategic national and local approach to deliver the skills needed and stimulate demand for clean energy and energy efficiency services.

The Greener Jobs Alliance liaises at a national and local level to build the broadest possible support for the policies, investment, partnerships and commitments needed to drive the transition to a low carbon economy because:

  • Employers will not ‘green’ their operations without a clear national policy and incentives,
  • Workers need job security which current policies don’t ensure
  • Education providers will not support the development of new training programmes unless they can see a local demand for the courses offered
  • Households and businesses will not be able to introduce low carbon options if there is a lack of skilled staff capable of doing the work
  • The Greener Jobs Alliance works with training bodies, colleges, universities, employers, local and national government, trade unions, housing associations, campaign and community groups – to build the policies, investment and partnerships needed to drive the transition to a zero-carbon economy.

Supporting organisations include: UNITE, PCS, NEU, UCU, SOSUK, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Haldane Society of Socialist lawyers…
