Sustainable Enterprises - creating more and better jobs. In most countries, private enterprises create the most jobs. This is especially true in developing countries, where over 90 percent of jobs are in the private sector. People who have overcome poverty identify “finding a paid job” or “starting a business” as the two most important reasons.
Besides directly contributing to inclusive growth, job creation and poverty reduction, enterprises also have a major responsibility to address climate change and environmental sustainability, because their operations affect the environment. Addressing climate change and environmental sustainability requires enterprises that can supply and use appropriate environmental technologies. This brochure briefly outline the ILO framework for promoting sustainable entreprises.
