Press release - Increasing shortage of green skills in Germany raises concerns Deutschland: Qualifikationsengpässe bei grünen Arbeitsplätzen geben Anlass zur Sorge
Press release - Underinvestment in green skills raises concerns For many companies in the environmental field, the current crisis means easier access to qualified workers. This situation encourages firms to cut back training for green skills. But without long-term investment, particularly in science and technology training, employers may soon experience a shortage of people with the right skills. In fact, countries with low unemployment are already facing such shortages. The potential repercussions for the European economy and labour market are serious. A forthcoming Cedefop publication suggests this outcome can be avoided if, among other measures, countries integrate skills strategies into their environment and energy policies.
