EESI – The Growing Climate Workforce: How Policies Today Could Shape the Jobs of Tomorrow

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to join us for a briefing about the current state of the climate workforce and the job creation potential of key climate policies.

Decarbonization provides an opportunity for job growth in multiple sectors, including energy efficiency, renewable energy, transmission and storage, and clean transportation. As businesses and government agencies seek to understand and mitigate their climate risks, climate adaptation and resilience are likewise rapidly emerging as attractive career options. EESI’s recent Climate Jobs fact sheet examines 2020 climate employment and provides further context for the briefing.

Climate policies currently being considered in Congress–including a clean energy standard, tax policies for renewable energy, and the Civilian Climate Corps–have potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, build resilience to a changing climate, strengthen environmental justice, and contribute to job creation.

Panelists will discuss the state-of-play for climate jobs and explore the benefits that could come with well-designed and durable climate policies.
