The move towards sustainable development is one of the main challenges of the European Union.
It is a key principle of the Fifth Environmental Policy and Action Programme that environmental
concerns are taken fully into account from the outset in the development of other policies and
programmes. Because of its structure, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living
and Working Conditions can play a unique role in this area by working with industry and being
able to operate on the interface of the environment and working conditions.
Against this background, 'sustainable development' is one of the six key issues in the
Foundation's programme for 1997-2000. The focus of the Foundation's activities on sustainable
development is sustainable production and consumption. In order to deal with these issues, the
Foundation has launched a number of initiatives with the aim of providing improved instruments
for employers and employees in order to support their activities in improving the efficiency of
their companies in an economically and ecologically sustainable way. The instruments on which
the Foundation is focusing are design methodologies, training needs and economic incentives.
This publication examines the use of economic instruments to improve the quality of both
working life and living conditions. In particular, the report examines the links between economic
incentives in these two areas and how policy interventions can be made mutually reinforcing. The
publication is the second in a series of three. The first report, entitled Economic Instruments for
Sustainable Development - Improving the External and Working Environments, Part 1, covered
Ireland and Germany. This second report is based on case studies in Italy, France, Denmark and
Portugal. A third, consolidated, report is also planned.
It is our hope that these reports will contribute to the debate among employers, employees and
policy makers on improved ways forward to a sustainable future.
