Building Green Skills for a Just Transition to a Net Zero Resilient Future

Shoosmiths has been included as a case study in Business in the Community’s ‘Routemap: Building Green Skills for a Just Transition to a Net Zero Resilient Future.’

BITC, The Prince’s Responsible Business Network, has published a routemap to help businesses ensure that they have the skills needed to allow them to succeed as world leaders doubling down on climate action. 

BITC’s routemap aims to help employers start or accelerate the work that needs to be done to ensure that the UK has the right skills to achieve net zero and climate resilience as quickly as possible.

As BITC explains there are many steps that businesses can take now to ensure that they are preparing for the skills of the future, including:

  • Understanding the risks and opportunities that the climate crisis presents for businesses.
  • Considering the groups impacted by the roll-out of green skills including, the current and future workforce and especially those workers who are most at risk from the transition to a green economy.
  • Focusing on these areas to help a green skills strategy:
    • Lead: equip leaders to empower everyone to act
    • Embed: make climate action everyone’s business
    • Include: enable upskilling for all

Shoosmiths’ case study, details how creating a link for all staff, including senior leaders, between its daily work and the need for organisation-wide climate action is critical to achieving its ambitious net-zero goals.
