Business leadership for a climate neutral economy

To help illustrate both how the climate transition is likely to impact jobs, and the interaction of these concurrent transformational trends, the report features five case studies that examine the impact of selected megatrends on sectors that will play a key role in achieving climate neutrality by 2050: offshore wind in the UK, automotive manufacturing in Germany, coal mining in Romania, steel manufacturing in Sweden and agriculture in Spain. Each case study demonstrates the potential impact of national and regional policy on the jobs and skills in relation to each sector.
