The greening of the economy is creating different jobs that require different skill needs. This webcast discusses a report by The Conference Board that assesses the green jobs in the European economy and the skills required to adequately fill them using a database from WANTED Technologies.
Issues to be addressed include:
- Green jobs are still fairly limited in the European economy, averaging at about 3 percent of jobs demanded.
- There is a large difference by country, with Denmark and Switzerland leading the percent of green jobs demanded.
- The greenest are jobs in engineering, science and installation, maintenance and repair work.
- The skills required for green jobs are mostly technical skills.
