However, ‘green’ is a far more encompassing descriptor, and one that is becoming more universally adopted.
The green transition does not simply refer to energy and renewables. Although these areas are a key focus of this report, the green skills demand cuts across the global value chain. Every industry, from fashion to transport, agriculture to automotive, will require green thinking.
Against this backdrop is a melting pot of sometimes competing forces, involving policy, regulation, legislation, and workforce strategy.
This guide is intended to summarise the moment we’re living in and frame the key issues at hand and present some of the required actions.
Finally, as a business that’s been entrenched within the green hiring landscape for over two decades, the topics discussed have even greater resonance to us.
Our hope is that this global update helps to guide your own thinking, while also serving as an invaluable marker for the months and year ahead.
