LinkedIn has created an insightful chart that outlines the fastest growing green skills globally (above), which should provide some help in deciding if your planned transition to a green job is relevant, or needs some adjustment.
But note it is not just traditional “green jobs” that look upon green skills favorably:
We found an increasing trend of green skills among professionals in roles that are not traditionally considered “green.” For example:
- In Pollution Prevention, knowledge of sustainable fashion is increasingly popular among Salespeople, Designers, and Stylists.
- In Environmental Finance, sustainable investment is increasingly being reported by Portfolio Managers and Investment Analysts.
- Across all categories, Project Managers, Program Managers, and Business Development Specialists are upskilling in the circular economy.
