Green transition or the process of transitioning to a sustainable low-carbon economy should lead to a 'greening' of jobs, i.e. to an increasing share of environmentally friendly requirements within occupations (greening of occupations) and a rising labour demand for employees in these occupations (greening of employment).
In this process, the concept of Just Transition is paramount because it must guarantee that green transition is socially fair and no one gets left behind.
