Sustainability is becoming more important for businesses across all industries. With the impact of the increasing social and environmental concern, more and more businesses are now incorporating sustainability into policies, processes, and practices. New business trends put much emphasis on producing green products and services such as renewable energy, closed-loop supply chain, electric vehicles, slow fashion (sustainable and ethical fashion), and plant-based substitutes. How do these business trends shape the demand of the workforce? 

According to the United Nations, the green economy is expected to create 24 million new jobs by 2030. With growing numbers of companies committed to driving sustainability, there are lots of opportunities and possibilities in a green industry. The United Nations Environment Program labeled green jobs as “occupations in the agriculture, manufacturing, research, and development, administration, and service sectors that contribute decisively to preserving or restoring environmental quality.” By acquiring the knowledge base in sustainability, professionals with different skills and degrees could turn their job into a competitive advantage in the in-demand job market. 

In collaboration with the Business Council for Sustainability Development Malaysia, LEARNTech Asia’s Access to Jobs inaugural session aims to offer you the guide to navigate your green career path. We have invited sustainability experts from different industries to share some key insights and trends, including green banking, environmental sustainability, human rights and equality, and corporate sustainability. The webinar is to offer an overall view on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), careers in sustainability, advice, and tips to professionals who are interested in making the jump.
