Data from LinkedIn’s Global Green Skills Report 2022 suggests the demand for individuals with green skills is outpacing supply.
"The report defines green skills as “skills that enable the environmental sustainability of economic activities.” Examples include pollution mitigation, sustainable procurement, ecosystem management, and environmental policy. According to the report, “sustainable fashion was the fastest-growing green skill globally, with an average annual growth rate of 90.6% from 2016–2020.”
Prepare employees. Companies need to understand how the green transition will affect workers’ roles and explore ways to use L&D to upskill them with green skills.
