Episode 24: Climate Week NYC 2021: Green Jobs In The Clean Energy Transition

The transition to 100% clean energy by 2030 – a historical commitment by the Biden Administration with the potential to create over 10 million green, well paid and skilled jobs. From construction to transport, manufacturing to industry, green jobs will continue to grow and with greater business and government collaboration increasing the demand for green jobs, has the potential to transform the American energy economy and secure a future for key American industries – but only if people and communities are placed at the heart of this transition. The Hub Live presents a 90-minute examination of Biden’s jobs and energy vision exploring how the transition can benefit all Americans, why it is so critical to other sectoral transitions, and how to build the level of capacity – both infrastructure and skills – required to deliver a new energy economy.
