Leaders’ commitments at the Summit level

– A commitment to implement the Universal Social Protection Floor initiative by 2020.

– A decision on the Financial Transactions Tax.

– A country by country self-identified target on decent and green jobs to be reached in the next 5-10 years, accompanied by a package of decent work policies to secure jobs quality. This target should help at least doubling the number of ‘green and decent jobs’.
