Investing for the future: More jobs out of a greener EU budget

Posted on 08 February 2012    
The EU budget has the potential to create more jobs than it is currently doing if it mainstreams green investment.

This report analyses the cost of each job in each sector including the Common Agricultural Policy, Cohesion Policy, Natura 2000, renewable energy and transport.

To date the EU has never published a full jobs audit of itsbudget, despite spending nearly €1 trillion between 2007 and 2014. Our report  will help policy makers consider the optimal solutions in job creation through the budget.

This report was commissioned by WWF, BirdLife Europe, CEE Bankwatch Network, European Environmental Bureau,  Friends of the Earth Europe and Transport and the Environment.
