The Time is Now
It’s no question that climate change is the issue of our generation – a statement that has been echoed by everyone from NASA, The Pope, the United Nations, financial regulators and instititons, and some of the world's largest asset owners. With a clear mandate to be on a clear path to net zero emissions by 2050, we are squarely in a consequential decade of action.
Investment is Accelerating, as is the Global Energy and Sustainability Workforce
Global energy investment is set to reach $2.4T in 2022, with record levels of funding being directed into clean energy, climate, and sustainability infrastructure, products, and services. Organizations increasingly recognize the materiality of these issues across their business lines and are investing in solutions and personnel. Job prospects are particularly bright – a 2022 Department of Energy report found that energy jobs grew faster than overall U.S. employment in 2021, while the inaugural 2022 IEA World Energy Employment report highlighted that new projects will continue to drive robust employment growth across the industry value chain.
