Description

As the climate crisis progresses day by day, it’s imperative that companies educate their employees to address environmental issues with real transformative policy. It doesn’t just start with hiring a team, but by operating the company with a sustainability mindset. New legislation is expected to create 537,000 jobs annually over the next decade in areas such as wind, solar, and EV manufacturing—an opportunity for companies to address the green workforce gap. At this session, Mastercard will discuss the accelerating demand for green skills, upskilling and reskilling approaches, and the future of work in a new regenerative economy.
