DOLE To Mobilize a Clean and Green Workplaces

Date Posted: Sep 24, 2009
The Department of labor and Employment (DOLE) and its family of agencies will mobilize its social partners in the industrial front and other stakeholders in drawing up strategies aimed at making workplaces clean and green and responsive against climate change.

Secretary Marianito Roque of DOLE said that DOLE bureaus, offices, and attached agencies will implement the "Project Green Workplace Advocacy" that calls for the conduct of the National and Regional Green Jobs Conferences that would involve labor, management, academe, and other government agencies including those at the local level in promoting not only productivity and safety and health but also clean and green practices in workplaces.

Under the project includes defining parameters for establishing a green workplace workplace environment and a labor-green job workplace policy aimed at helping labor and management adopt green job policy at the plant level.

“Aside from helping the environment the said program will also boost employment demand or the green collar jobs,” Roque added.

Advocating for green workplaces would give rise to investments in transitioning the economy from "traditional" to "green" and subsequently creating new sources of green jobs.

Under the project DOLE would conduct a national green jobs conference sometime in November to be held in Manila. Same conference will be organized to spread the advocacy in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao early next year.
