This chapter focuses on the labour market aspect of the social consequences of green growth. It discusses the analytical frameworks that have informed past economic analyses of the potential impact of various green growth policies on labour markets and suggests possible directions for future development of models to enable better analysis of potential impacts. It then sketches some of the implications of the various frameworks for the likely distributional impacts of green growth policies. Evidence from countries’ experience with environmental policies is considered, along with empirical work on the likely future impacts of green growth policies. This leads to a discussion of how potential adverse impacts of green growth policies on workers and households can be mitigated.
