Working towards a green economy after Rio+20

This event took place on 2 October 2012 13.30 – 15.00 in the European Parliament and was jointly organized by the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) and the International Labour Organization (ILO). Panelists from UNEP, ILO, the European Parliament and the European Commission discussed the importance of greening the economy for sustainable development, employment growth, poverty reduction and social inclusion. The concept of a ‘Green Economy’ is certainly not a novel phenomenon. However, the current urgency of transitioning to green economies is a necessary condition for sustainable development. Since Rio+20 in June 2012, the European Commission has been analyzing the outcomes and identifying the next steps.

The event was moderated by Elisabeth Schroedter (MEP). Steven Stone (UNEP Chief Economics and Trade Branch), Peter Poschen (ILO Director of the Job Creation and Enterprise Development Department), Cristiana Pasca Palmer (DG DEVCO Head of Unit Climate Change, Environment, Natural Resources and Water), and Loris Di Pietrantonio (DG EMPL Deputy Head of Unit European Employment Strategy) were among the panelists.
