Green House has been developing a model for the jobs created by the transition required to address both the Climate and Biodiversity crises as well as shift towards sustainable resource consumption. This work began in 2016 and has since lead to work focusing for various regions. Below are a collection of reports, models and works written by Green House and our partners.
Between 2017 and 2019 Green House developed a model for estimating the jobs created by the transition required to address both the Climate and Biodiversity crises as well as shift towards sustainable resource consumption. This work included, the publication of Unlocking the Job Potential of Zero Carbon, by the Green European Foundation with the support of Green House think tank. This contains the results of modelling for the UK, Hungary and Ireland, carried out with the support of Green Foundation Ireland and Ecopolis in Hungary. The report was launched at Towards a New Climate, Katowice, 11th December 2018 , a fringe event to COP24.
In 2019 Green House produced summary reports for all local areas in the UK. This has subsequently lead to Green New Deal / Climate Jobs reports for Cumbria, economy areas around Gatwick and Leeds-Braford Airports.
The event will launch the report, A Green New Deal for Leeds City Region: GALBA's Vision for a Sustainable Local Economy which was written in collaboration with Green House and published by the Green European foundation
This online event heard from authors of the report, A Green New Deal for Gatwick along with trade unionists and local airport campaigners on how to challenge the local jobs case for airport expansion and make the case for a different route.
Green House's Anne Chapman discusses the potential for a transition in the Cumbria region into an economic powerhouse and the impact on jobs and the environment
report looks at the implications of a transition to net zero carbon by 2037 - a target date adopted by the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership. There could, on average, be 9,000 additional jobs, mostly in renewable electricity generation but also in transport, industry and waste management.
Many job opportunities near Gatwick are at the airport or in associated sectors. Covid-19 brought an almost complete cessation of flying, with a slow regrowth likely to take years to return to prior levels. Contemplation of a different future for workers across the Gatwick region has become urgent
The final event of our Climate Jobs project for this year at which Jonathan Essex and Peter Sims will be presenting the results of our climate jobs modelling for Northern Ireland. This one day conference is organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Green Foundation Ireland.
A one-day conference for those looking to act on the climate emergency. Why we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground and how we can shift to a zero carbon economy. What scale of change do we need to be looking at? What would the benefits be for jobs and local economies?
As part of our 2019 project with the Green European Foundation, Green House has worked with partners in Poland - Fundacja Strefa Zieleni and the Institute for Sustainable Development - on estimates of climate jobs in Poland.
We have produced summary reports showing the results of our climate jobs modelling for each 'NUTS' area, down to level 3, area in the UK.
This report outlines the methodology used and results of our climate jobs modelling work in the UK, Ireland and Hungary carried out in 2018. It is published by the Green European Foundation, with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
This event presented the results of modelling to estimate the net number of jobs that could be created in each local authority area by the transition to a zero carbon economy, in the key sectors of energy, transport, waste management, buildings and food, farming and forestry.
Green European Foundation, with the support of Green Foundation Ireland and in partnership with SIPTU and the Dublin Council of Trade Unions, present an all-day Seminar on the theme: Jobs in a Changing Climate
This report uses Sheffield City Region as a case study and looked at renewable energy, transport, buildings, farming, forestry and food, and reuse, repair and recycling. Where they could be quantified, the numbers of jobs that would be lost were subtracted from the number of jobs created.
This report is a case study using the Isle of Wight to develop a model to estimate the number of jobs that would be created by the transition of key sectors of the economy.
