The project

Agreenment – A Green Mentality for Collective Bargaining aims at investigating how and why collective bargaining can contribute to embed the principle of environmental sustainability into labour relations, without abandoning but reinvigorating the ideals of justice, equality and democracy that justify the traditional and selective goals of the EU social model and collective bargaining regulation. The research project is based on the idea that there is no contradiction between environmental sustainability and the fundamental ideals and functions of labour law and industrial relations.

The project covers 6 EU countries: France, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. The “extended experts network” enlarges the Agreenment perspective beyond the EU and the project countries.

The Agreenment project is co-funded by the European Commission, DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, under budget heading VP/2017/004 (Grant Agreement VP/2017/004/0037), Improving expertise in the field of industrial relations.
