Adaptation to climate change affects where jobs are, employment practices and relations, the skills required, and job quality. However, research on work and employment has been limited. Labour market institutions will play a key role in sustainable workplace adaptation, but we know little about how they are responding and what their plans are.
In order to provide a clearer picture of what businesses and workers are doing in the process of transitioning to a low emissions economy, the Centre for Workforce Futures has undertaken a major research project with support from the Department of Industry. Results from this project will be reported at this symposium, together with a range of contributions from key thought leaders in this field.
