Public services provide the vital foundation for a sustainable world. Environmental sustainability cannot be achieved without social sustainability. This includes respect for and compliance with the core International Labour Organization conventions to create decent working conditions. PSI is a leading advocate on this front.
PSI and the global labour movement achieved a measure of success in 2009 in gaining more widespread acceptance of the idea that a greener economy requires a just transition that assists workers in retraining for new, greener jobs.
Climate justice requires social justice. This motto guides our continuing efforts to build more sustainable societies around the world.
