In a recent survey, 246 out of 300 corporate executives plan to invest in making their companies more energy efficient within the next 12 months. The CEO’s see this as an opportunity to create revenue, the side effect I see will be the creation of jobs needed to help make these companies more environmentally friendly.
Investment into climate change initiatives will create opportunities for several career fields associated with energy efficiency. They include HVAC technicians, energy engineers, financial analysts and energy auditors. O*NET, an online database of careers created for the U.S. Department of Labor, lists these career fields as not only green but specifically marks them as having a bright future.
Just think – only 300 CEO’s responded to this survey. With climate change being an ever present topic and corporations seeking out revenue opportunities in a down economy, you could probably add thousands more to the above mentioned 246 corporate executives who plan to invest in energy efficiency. The resulting career opportunities could be astounding!
