What is the Sustainability Skills Gap?

The Sustainability skills gap is the shortage of knowledge, training, and skills to enable our labour force to deliver the necessary transformation to a low carbon, socially equitable, and commercially resilient green economy. The Sustainability skills gap is the key challenge to enable our labour market to adapt and for our economy to develop resilience in the face of an obsolete industrial economic model. The sustainability sector is set to create millions of sector-specific jobs by 2050, broadly the target for net zero, in addition to requiring new skills, innovation, and fresh approaches in existing roles as we adapt to climate change, levelling up, new regulation, and ESG targets.
