Tap into huge number of upcoming Green Jobs

Climate and sustainability jobs can be categorized into 3 broad areas:

  1. Green jobs - These are roles where majority of the job content & responsibilities is already green/sustainability related (E.g. Sustainability manager)
  2. Greening jobs - These are traditional roles which have seen an increased level of green/sustainabiltiy related job responsibilites (e.g. Portfolio/program manager, Facilities manager)
  3. Greening potential - These are roles which have the potential to be "green/greening" jobs in the future but aren't today. Examples include: Product managers who have to build green features into their products (e.g. green loans), or marketing managers who need to market green products without greenwashing, or compliance managers who need to comply with new regulator reporting requirements on climate metrics. More greening potential roles include investor relations and press teams who need to be able to talk credibly about financial institutions' green commitments.

Today's green roles are very diverse and are present across functions and at different levels of organisations.

RISE Green Economy will prepare learners to take on additional sustainability responsibilities in greening jobs or transition into green jobs for senior leaders, finance and supply chain professionals.

"LinkedIn data shows hiring for green jobs consistently outpaces overall hiring." 

World Economic Forum
