Skills for the Green Economy

In this white paper, The Adecco Group draws upon internal insights and international expertise to illustrate the crucial role that skills investment needs to play in moving toward a Green Economy. Skills investment and development need to be understood not merely as a result of the transition, but rather as the decisive factor that enables the Green Transition in the first place. Highlighting the policy context for the Green Transition of labour markets and business worldwide, we discuss megatrends in the World of Work and the necessary components skills policies need to address in order to best achieve a fair and equitable transition process.

In this study, we will discuss the following topics:

  • Policy Context
  • Implications of the Green Transition for Skills – Trends in the World of Work
  • Sector deep-dive: the energy sector
  • Sector deep-dive: the automotive industry
  • Recommendations and conclusions
