Greening with Jobs: World Employment Social Outlook 2018

 

Preface

The world of work is intrinsically linked to the natural environment. Jobs in agriculture, fisheries, forestry, tourism and other industries including pharmaceuticals, textiles and food and beverage depend on a healthy environment. Temperature rises like those expected due to climate change will increase the number of days that are too hot to work, putting workers’ health at risk and reducing productivity.

We may soon reach the point in which the jobs created or improved by economic development risk being destroyed or worsened by the resulting environmental degradation. The world of work needs environmental sustainability.

Social justice requires it, given the large inequalities in the impact of the negative effects of environmental degradation.

As I highlighted in my Report to the 106th Session of the International Labour Conference, there need be no tension or contradiction between economic growth and jobs on the one hand, and environmental sustainability on the other. This development path is embedded in the Paris Agreement, with its reference to the imperative of a just transition.

The present report shows that achieving environmental sustainability can create jobs. The green economy will be a major source of job growth in the future of work. Taking action in the energy sector to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the century can create around 24 million jobs, largely offsetting any job losses. Embracing the circular economy to reduce material extraction and waste generation will also result in net job gains.

The job-creating potential of environmental sustainability is not a given: the right policies are needed to promote green industries while ensuring decent work within them. They are also needed to allow workers to transition to new sectors and to protect those who may lose out due to lower activity in industries that contribute to environmental degradation.

In 2013, the ILO launched the Green Initiative as one of the seven initiatives to mark the ILO’s centenary in 2019. It aims to better equip the actors of the world of work to understand the challenges and opportunities of the transition and to take up the active role that they must play in managing this change. This report is one step towards this end, along with the Guidelines for a just transition towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all endorsed by the ILO Governing Body, and the ILO’s Green Jobs Programme.

As this report shows, there is scope for policies in the world of work to advance environmental sustainability; and for environmental policies to ensure decent work. A coherent and integrated legal framework is a step in this direction. Labour regulations on occupational safety and health, for example, can contribute to the preservation of the environment. Advances have been made by including decent work issues in environmental regulations, such as climate action policies that take note of their skills implications. Providing workers with the right set of skills and recognizing workers’ skills will help the
transition to sectors with employment growth, and also to better jobs. Social protection systems can support workers’ incomes against risks stemming from climate change and local environmental degradation. Social dialogue contributes to finding innovative ways to mitigate environmental impacts that are reducing or negatively affecting employment or working conditions.

It is too late for the world to grow now, and only clean up later. It is time to grow clean, to go green. The Sustainable Development Goals are clear in the desire to combine decent work for all with environmental sustainability. This report shows it is possible and allows us to plan, not just wish for, a sustainable future.

Guy Ryder
ILO Director-General

What is insurtech? It is just what the name suggests: the combination of insurance and technology. Or, perhaps more accurately, the rise and use of a wide range of technologies within the insurance industry, from underwriting and claims to administrative functions. What has always been an extremely paper-intensive industry is now gradually dragging itself into the digital age. The disruption of an age-old industry by the onset of a digital revolution.

Relatório InsurTech: Munique assume a liderança europeia do Seguro Digital

Relatório InsurTech

A saída do Reino Unido da Zona do Euro (brexit) está causando mudanças também na área de tecnologia e inovação do Setor de Seguros internacional. A cidade de Londres, um dos bastiões globais do Seguro, acaba de perder para a alemã Munique a liderança da vanguarda europeia das InsurTechs.

A tomada da dianteira como cidade hotspot de InsurTech na Europa não é algo que possa causar surpresa quando se fala de Munique. Além de Cidade-Símbolo da Bavária, Munique é o coração do Indústria Seguradora alemã. Com a (aparente) perda da liderança londrina, Munique desloca-se para o olho de um furacão catalisador de pesquisas, inovações, debates e tecnologias relacionadas ao disruptivo futuro digital do Setor de Seguros.

A força da “Tempestade InsurTech Bávara” está atraindo não apenas seguradoras, mas também empresas de tecnologia, empreendedores digitais, investidores, uma enxurrada de CEOs, CIOs, CFOs, CMOs, CDOs e uma gama de ávidos executivos e empresários, todos dispostos e ávidos por atualização e adequação a conceitos, nomenclaturas e “ecossistemas” gerados pela Era das InsurTechs e startups de seguro digital globais. E não é para menos: olha só.

Investidores: 50 empresas de capital de risco e private equity

A região de Munique possui um excelente acesso ao financiamento de inúmeros business angels, empresas de capital de risco, programas de empreendimentos corporativos e subsídios públicos.

Governos incentivam ambiente inovador

Os governos local, estadual e federal aprimoram a vantagem competitiva da região, criando um ambiente inovador para empresas em todas as etapas.

Tech-Companies: gigantes oferecem parcerias

Microsoft, Amazon e IBM, as Tech-Companies, encontraram sua base em Munique e estão complementando modelos comerciais de empresas e de seguradoras, assumindo funções que vão desde parceiros para a fabricação de equipamentos a provedores de tecnologia para investidores.

Geração de conhecimento: 24 universidades e 16 institutos de pesquisa e desenvolvimento

Universidades renomadas, bem como institutos de pesquisa aplicada, impulsionam o desenvolvimento tecnológico, criando o terreno fértil e necessário para desencadear modelos e ideias de negócios alternativos.

Múltipla Startups e 18 incubadoras / aceleradoras

As startups já se constituem a força impulsionadora da inovação tecnológica no Negócio de Seguros em Munique, agilizando a digitalização dos processos corporativos para melhorar a experiência global dos clientes e a eficiência da indústria.

A força das Corporações: 20 empresas já se posicionaram na região

Os modelos de negócios inovadores estão sendo são ativamente apoiados por líderes globais e players locais especializados no Setor de Seguros, bem como por líderes de mercado de indústrias associadas ao segmento, como automotiva, saúde e TI.
