The Intersection of People & Planet  

The green transition is a skills transition, and it is happening now.  Employers recognize the vast potential of the green economy to expand opportunities, while protecting the planet, and have identified building green talent as a top priority. People also understand the promise of green jobs as a pathway to grow their skills and value.

ManpowerGroup is on the forefront of the green transformation, providing insights and practical solutions to guide companies through the changes ahead, along with the upskilling programs people need to develop advanced green skills for today and tomorrow. Read more here.

"Many roles, from logistics to finance, will be impacted by the greening of jobs. There is an urgent need for employers to rethink how they hire, train, retain, and engage green talent to gain a competitive edge and we are dedicated to playing our part. We are committed to progress, not pledges, and will never pause on our bias for action."
