The ILO’s executive body has adopted new Guidelines aimed at enabling governments, workers and employers around the globe to leverage the process of structural change towards a greener, low-carbon economy, create decent jobs at a large-scale and promote social protection.

The Guidelines allow the practical country-level application of a set of conclusions focused on achieving sustainable development, decent work and green jobs. The conclusions were adopted by governments, workers and employers’ organizations of the ILO’s 186 member States at the 2013 International Labour Conference (ILC).
