The Green (Silver) Lining- Jobs In Cleantech

Green jobs are jobs that are focused and shaped around activities that help preserve and protect the environment.

These jobs can be from the conventional sectors like assembling and manufacturing, or in newer ‘green’ areas like environmentally friendly power and energy productivity. Even as the Covid pandemic has caused widespread job losses worldwide, it has also strengthened the resolve of governments and users worldwide to focus more on the environment. That has shown up in ever higher commitments to reducing emissions, be it net zero at country level, firms that have brought forward their own plans to become greener, cut back on plastic use and more. In the renewable energy sector, a whole host of firms have stepped up with their own efforts to create quality jobs. In fact, experts estimate creation of over 150,000 such jobs between 2021-23 itself. We have seen this, ever since we started tracking jobs in the sector, and highlighting those in our new jobs section. Not only have we seen interest jump, but feedback in terms of prospective candidates seeking a career in cleantech has also been huge. We would strongly advise aspirant to keep a sharp eye on the Energy Jobs section at SaurEnergy, to stay abreast with the latest and the best on offer in Cleantech today.
