Every UK job has the potential to be green, according to a new independent, expert report published this week and backed by the UK government.
Reaffirming its commitment to delivering a workforce needed for a green industrial revolution and outlining a series of green programmes providing adults with the skills needed to pursue a green career, the UK government has today welcomed 15 new recommendations from the independent Green Jobs Taskforce.
The Taskforce, convened by the Business and Education departments in November 2020, has published its findings and recommendations on how the UK government, industry and skills sector can best deliver the green jobs and skills of the future.
- publishing a detailed Net Zero Strategy and using policy to promote good green jobs, skills and competitive supply chains
- industry, the education sector and the UK government working together to ensure green careers advice and pathways into good green jobs
- building on the UK government’s skills reforms to support people to work in the new green economy
Alongside the report, they are issuing a call to action on how the UK can deliver a green industrial revolution with government, business and the education sector working together. The government has welcomed the recommendations in this report and reaffirmed its commitment to delivering a workforce needed for a green industrial revolution.
The government have also outlined a series of green programmes providing adults with the skills needed to pursue a green career.
