SocEnv back IEMA campaign for green skills commitment at COP28
We have joined more than 40 organisations and businesses in backing IEMA’s campaign to get green skills and training on the agenda at COP28.
SocEnv have joined more than 40 organisations and businesses in backing IEMA’s campaign to get green skills and training on the agenda at COP28. Other signatories include Nestle UK, the British Chambers of Commerce, and OVO Energy.
The coalition has written to the UK’s net zero minister and COP28 representative, Graham Stuart, asking him to push for green skills and jobs to be included in the final cover text agreement at the climate summit.
Specifically, the group is calling for Paris Agreement signatories to include a detailed education and skills investment and development roadmap as part of their nationally determined contributions to the UNFCCC.
This would help deliver the “global step-change in training” that is required to combat climate change effectively, according to IEMA and this is a vision that SocEnv are also pushing for.
