‘Sydney beats London in race to be green’

December 2011: As part of an OECD studyEnabling Local Green Growth: Addressing Climate Change Effects on Employment and Local Developmentfour cities were studied in relation to the  impacts of climate change and effects on local  labour markets, focussing on the creation of jobs and the development of a skilled workforce to meet the needs of the greener economy. A press report on a workshop for the study highlighted that “More than half of Sydney companies have changed or modified their jobs to improve green performance, compared with only 3.5 per cent of London firms.”

The full OECD comparison report is as yet to be published (see above link for further information), however the detailed London study can be downloaded here.
