United Nations Environment Programme (2007)

This publication addresses the synergy between labour and the environment, linking the work of UNEP to the role workers can play in the implementation of environmentally sustainable development strategies. The publication focuses on the workers perspectives on specific issues such as climate change and energy, public access to resources and services, occupational, environmental and public health, chemical risks and hazardous substances

and on establishing a Common framework for Action towards sustainable consumption and production patterns, corporate social responsibility and accountability, education, capacity-building and knowledge sharing, interacting with other stakeholders and fostering workers' involvement in the environmental agenda.
