Developing competency standards and training programs will be an important part of the Ministry of Manpower’s green job growth strategy.

Indonesia’s Ministry of Manpower has committed to promoting the creation and implementation of green jobs as part of the country’s sustainability efforts for the period 2025-2029, said Anwar Sanusi, Secretary General of the Ministry of Manpower.

He said: “Today, green jobs are inevitable, and it is a high priority. Our workforce must also keep pace with the nature of a green job.”

Citing the International Labor Organization (ILO), Sanusi explained that green jobs are crucial for promoting a sustainable economy and society. These jobs not only help preserve the environment for current and future generations, but also open up new employment opportunities, such as in the production of pollution control devices.

During a discussion on the technocratic design of the National Medium Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2025-2029, Sanusi highlighted the environmental benefits of green jobs. He identified key sectors for green job growth, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management, sustainable transport and sustainable agriculture.

To facilitate the growth of green jobs, the Ministry of Manpower plans to encourage organizations to adopt green productivity-based tools, techniques and methods for productivity improvement. Sanusi said the ministry is developing work competency standards, competency programs and training programs tailored to the needs of green jobs.

In addition, the ministry aims to strengthen partnerships with organizations, industries and vocational training institutions to support green jobs initiatives. He also noted that there is ongoing coordination with Bappenas (the National Development Planning Agency) to ensure alignment with national planning strategies, he reported Antara.
