What are climate jobs?
The responsibilities of a climate job can be very broad due to the wide-reaching impact climate change has on both society and the environment.
Climate change is a global challenge and affects every country on every continent.
As nations across the world commit to tackling climate change, and sign-up to meet ambitious targets, a role in climate is the perfect opportunity to be at the forefront of the sustainability agenda.
Why are climate jobs important?
Climate jobs are essential in combating climate change. Climate professionals work at the source to create solutions to reduce emissions, and to mitigate the problems caused by an increase of CO2 emissions.
In our warming world, climate change professionals are crucial to changing the fate of our planet; however, a greener and more sustainable world would also be a more equal world, indicating that climate jobs are essential to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The aim of many climate change jobs is to:
Reduce CO2 emissions
Enhance sinks of greenhouse gases
Build resilience of human and ecological systems
If these goals are met, climate change professionals will work towards creating a more sustainable future.
