Greener Skills and Jobs

image of Greener Skills and Jobs

Green skills, that is, skills needed in a low-carbon economy, will be required in all sectors and at all levels in the workforce as emerging economic activities create new (or renewed) occupations. Structural changes will realign sectors that are likely to decline as a result of the greening of the economy and workers will need to be retrained accordingly. The successful transition to a low-carbon economy will only be possible if workers can flexibly adapt and transfer from areas of decreasing employment to new industries. This report suggests that the role of skills and education and training policies should be an important component of the ecological transformation process.

Licensing and certification to increase skills provision and utilisation amongst low-carbon small and medium-sized enterprises in the United Kingdom

This chapter focuses on the use of licensing and certification as a means of increasing appropriate levels of skills provision amongst a range of low-carbon occupations in the United Kingdom. Previous work addressed the range of market and governance failures in the provision of low-carbon skills and the measures adopted to address these failures. This chapter examines the potential to increase the use of licensing and certification to address these market and governance failures, and the resulting challenges that may arise.
