Green tech brings the next generation of workers, who will be leading us into a net zero emissions future
We are looking to the future with an ambitious goal in sight: the accomplishment of net zero emissions by 2050. So, it seems obvious that in order to get there, innovative clean energy solutions will need to become mainstream. And that is a result only achievable by increasing investments together with developing a new tech workforce, a greener one.
Luckily, this is already happening. The current energy landscape is teeming with the rise of green tech companies and the emergence of talented professionals who no longer view technology as something separate from sustainability.

The demand for tech and green skills has increased dramatically over the last few years.
To better understand the green tech market and its workforce, we conducted extensive research to analyse the current state of affairs.
The demand for green skills has increased dramatically over the last few years. In fact, according to a report published by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the number of jobs in the energy sector could rise to 139 million jobs in 2030 under the 1.5°C scenario — where we will be able to limit global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Our whitepaper provides an in-depth look at the green tech talent landscape, what is needed to drive the transition towards net zero emissions, and the emergent markets that will benefit from this workforce.
