Our latest research

In Summer 2023 the Environmental Policy Forum (EPF) issued a green skills survey.

The survey was developed to determine:

• The extent of the green skills challenge across sectors and anecdotal/ research evidence to demonstrate this challenge.
• Activity underway or planned to address green skills challenges where they exist.
• Interest in collaboration and areas where activity could be focused to maximise our collective impact.
