All jobs greener

We are building a platform where anybody, from any sector or background, can go to understand how they can play a role in greening the economy.

Our mission is to ensure a more sustainable future by providing access to information and opportunities around green skills, jobs and careers. We are building a platform where anybody, from any sector or background, can go to understand how they can play a role in the wider green economy.

Play your part

This is your opportunity to be part of the solution to climate change, biodiversity loss, the plastic waste crisis and other environmental challenges. In response to the global need for action, the UK government has a target of reaching net zero emissions by 2050, and to turn around the decline in our natural environment. This can only be achieved with a trained workforce with relevant skills.

Get a head start in a booming sector

New green jobs will be created, and existing jobs will need to be done in a greener way to ensure that all businesses are operating sustainably. Every single individual will need to develop green skills.

Seize your opportunity

Everybody across the globe has the opportunity to contribute, either on a personal or professional level, to the green agenda.

Defining a green career

A green career is a job, or series of jobs, across an occupational life that contribute to improving the natural environment and addressing climate change.

We have already seen the creation of new roles, in areas that didn’t previously exist.

We will see new roles develop, with the emergence of the green economy and clean technologies.

In the UK, up to 480,000 green jobs will be created and supported by 2030.

Many roles will require enhanced green skills.

Where do you fit in?

Unsurprisingly, there are numerous definitions out there around green careers, and so we’ve broken it down for you, based on definitions from IEMA.

Green Skills

An umbrella term for the technical skills, knowledge, behaviours and capabilities required to tackle the environmental challenges we face and to unlock new opportunities for growth.

Green Jobs

Specialist roles that focus on specific domains or initiatives dedicated to improving environment outcomes for an organization or for the economy.

Green Economy

A potential future state of the whole UK economy, in which fundamental change in the way the economy functions, has taken place. Growth will continue to be the essential motif of our economy, but its measurement will be more holistic, more consistently factoring in people and planet, alongside profit.
