Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global ecological footprint has been growing significantly since the mid-20th century. In response to this exponential increase, in 2015, the United Nations presented a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Of these, particularly important for this Special Issue are those related to environmental and occupational health and the well-being of individuals.

Initiatives are being taken across various continents to control climate change and consequently improve people’s quality of life and the planet's future. Examples of initiatives with significant impact include the "Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis" in the USA and the 2030 Agenda for the SDG in the European Union. In addition to these initiatives, many others across all continents set mitigation and adaptation to climate change, human health and the environment as main goals. To this end, the circular economy, the responsible use of resources, decent work and well-being are at the core of all sustainability policies. 

In this framework, this Special Issue aims to bring together the research being conducted in the framework of the UN SDGs, namely Sustainable Work Environment and Occupational Well-Being.
