The Flemish economy is extremely diversified with a number of value-added industries
and a highly skilled workforce. The shift to a green economy will however require
specific knowledge, values and attitudes from the Flemish workforce. This report analyses
the skills dimension of the transition to a green economy at the local level, with
specific reference to emerging needs in the agro-food, construction and chemicals
sectors. It also provides recommendations for the development of green skills and
occupational profiles at the organisational level, while advising policy makers on
the best method of assisting firms to transition to a green economy.
