The future of jobs is green

25 June 2022

This foresight study aims to leap forward, envisioning plausible medium- and long-term futures for the European labour markets. It aims to shed light on how jobs will change in the contxt of the green transition. This study goes beyond short term forecasts and covers all of the three time horizons: i) expected, ii) transition, and iii) futures. Expected developments were derived from a review of existing quantitative analyses. Drivers of change relevant to the green transition and more generally to the labour market were collected from literature. Based on expected developments and key drivers of change, ‘snapshots of the future’ were sketched. These snapshots highlight long-term futures by 2040 and beyond. Combining the insights gained from forecasting and foresight, implications were derived for the future of jobs & skills in the green transition.
