ioe climate change mandate
IOE Climate Change Mandate
  • The industries most effected by climate change are energy, transport, construction, tourism and agriculture. There will also be significant consequential impacts on all workplaces because of changes to input costs, shifts in consumer trends, requirements for supply chain compliance and maybe labour agreements.  
  • Many industries will be required to restructure, in a compressed timeframe. Workplaces will change, occupational profiles and skill requirements will vary. It will be essential that EO’s are pressing their national governments and vocational and educational systems to deliver the skills required by employers in a climate sensitive marketplace.
