In recent years the environment has become an increasingly important issue in many sectors of society, from business and industry to community and government. This volume offers an original analysis of the progress being made in a number of European countries towards sustainable development and the impact this is having on the jobs market and the career structure of those employed for their environmental skills and expertise. It examines institutionalised environmental policies, including the impact of the European Environment agency and European Community environmental directives, as well as global conventions and agreements on biodiversity and sustainable development. The book reviews the areas of expertise, training and education required across Europe to meet these environmental challenges and examines the resultant job opportunities in the private and public sector. With contributions from across Europe and wide-ranging analysis and empirical case studies, The Environment, Employment and Sustainable Development is an important work for students, researchers and practitioners with an interest in environmental studies, business and economics.
