The timeliness of the studied problematics is the result of the forecasts for the creation of millions of new "green" jobs. Experts call to take concrete actions to ensure that the "green" workplaces will provide decent work and poverty reduction. This study aims to analyze the green jobs in countries outside the European Union. The main conclusions concern current issues related to the green jobs. An increase of investments in green jobs, sustainable and thorough interest in them in the countries outside the European Union has been observed. Green jobs contribute to improving living standards and reducing poverty. There is a shortage of "green skills", which requires the development of new curricula for training and retraining. The development of green jobs is accompanied by problems that require the development of state policy to help resolve them. Collaboration between unions, employers and the state is needed for the development of green jobs.
