Outlook on the growth of green jobs in different sectors Renewable energy could provide more than 125,265 jobs by 81.5 percent between now and 2020, when 20 percent of the primary energy is drawn from renewable sources. Sustainable transport: By 2020, the number of jobs in the service sector could increase by 40 percent to industrial activities and construction of infrastructure in the context of sustainable transport to 770,000. Construction Industry: Could produce up to 1.37 million jobs over time — 25 million refurbishment residential units — for better insulation and improved energy use. Waste Management currently employs at least 110,000 workers. Studies show that by 2016, 27,850 jobs in this sector will have been created. Primary industry: There is a great potential for job creation in the iron and steel, aluminum, cement and paper industry, largely in recycling. This is «an important impact on employment and growth,» it said. Currently, there are 400000-500000 green jobs in Spain, an estimate which represents approximately 2.2 percent of the country’s total employment. The green economy contributes an estimated € 25 billion EUR or 2.4 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). The report — prepared by Sustainlabour, with technical assistance from the ILO stresses that the creation of green jobs can actually help beat the recession. He cites figures from the Observatory on Sustainability in Spain (OSE) and the Biodiversity Foundation (FB), which means that more than 1 million green jobs could be created in Spain by 2020, depending on the degree of political support for the sectors that have show a high potential to reactivate the economy. «The green economy is a great way to increase competitiveness, the creation of quality jobs and reduce the economic impact on the environment,» says Joaquнn Nieto, who heads the ILO office in Madrid. «This is particularly relevant at a time when Spain needs to jumpstart its economy. Recent studies have shown that green industries in Europe, the recession better than others due to the retention of more jobs. Earlier this year, the European Commission noted that the jobs growth of eco-industries, on average, 2.7 percent the year of 2000 to 2008 compared to 1 percent of the overall economy. The ILO defines green jobs as «decent jobs, reduce the consumption of energy and raw materials to minimize to limit greenhouse gas emissions, waste and pollution, and protect and restore ecosystems.»
