Skills for Sustainability

What skills and profiles are in short supply in the green transformation? How is the industry identifying gaps and carrying out workforce recruitment and planning? What is the role of policy makers and technical communities in this challenge? Engineers and industry players are already working towards their net zero goals. However, deploying related strategies and scaling-up green technologies requires adequate workforce, even with some new skills emerging. How will policymakers, industry adapt and rise to meet this challenge?
