As the market-leader in sustainability recruitment for two decades, we are highly experienced at placing individuals in renewable energy roles globally.

This network is made up of purpose-driven professionals who are highly focussed on creating a more sustainable future.
What is Cleantech?
Cleantech is a term used to describe products, processes or services that either reduce or optimise the use of natural resources to eliminate their adverse effects on the environment and its ecosystems.
Playing a central role in helping to offset the impact of climate change, cleantech is at the forefront of sustainable technological development.
The sight of a wind turbine or solar panel should be increasingly familiar to all of us; however, clean and renewable energy sources are now even more important than ever as governments across the world attempt to meet international targets for reducing carbon emissions.
The demand for Cleantech careers will only grow as the world looks towards reaching net-zero emissions and begins to move away from a fossil fuel-driven economy.
Why is Cleantech important?
Cleantech stands to provide significant relief to shortages in energy, water and other natural resources.
Cleantech also provides a solution for both developed and developing countries to address pressing concerns like greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, resource scarcity and pollution.
Cleantech is absolutely essential to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and is a necessary component of the economy if we want to distance ourselves from using fossil fuels.
What skills do cleantech professionals need to have?
The technical skills required for a cleantech role differ from role to role, organisation to organisation, and from individual to individual.
Cleantech roles are in high demand due to the critical nature of turning away from fossil fuel supplies and towards clean, green energy. At Acre, we strive to put the right cleantech professionals in the right jobs at the right time.
We help conceptualise these solutions on a daily basis, working closely with both candidates and companies to find the best fit for a role.
We also look further than our candidates’ technical abilities. We have created a bespoke competency framework of non-technical skills based on data from over 2,000 purpose-driven professionals to understand what “good” looks like in sustainability-related professions.
We use this to ensure that the value we add stems beyond merely placing a candidate into a role. Instead, we work to equip cleantech professionals with the non-technical skills to drive meaningful change and create a lasting impact in their role.
