Business, organised labour and climate policy: forging a role at the negotiation table

Glynn, Peter J. and Cadman, Tomothy and Maraseni, Tek Narayan ORCID: (2017) Business, organised labour and climate policy: forging a role at the negotiation table. Edward Elgar Publishing, Cheltenham, United Kingdom. ISBN 9781786430113


This impartial study analyses the role of employer’s organisations and trade unions in climate change policy and its impacts on the labour market. The policies of government to manage greenhouse gas emissions will require business to change its product and service delivery arrangements, which in turn means labour requirements will also change. The book also considers whether labour market issues should be explicit in the theoretical framework of ecological modernisation as it guides the policy development process.
