Free eBook: Top Skills in Demand

We asked employers, employees and industry stakeholders to determine the skills required to build a successful career in the environmental sector. 686 participants from government, industry and academia provided insights that have been analyzed and provide valuable insights on:​

  • Top skills environmental employers demand​
  • Technical and soft skill requirements by experience level​
  • How to create a learning path​
  • Solutions for success​

​Hint: Many employees often lack essential skills and this gap exists because many academic curricula are not able to significantly cover them, and workers are expected to develop this skill set on the job.​
