End of financial year results for Acre show growth in ‘green job’ recruitment
(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) December 10, 2010 - There are now increasingly positive signs that the ‘green jobs’ market is on an upturn. In the first eight months of 2010 - Acre, a specialist sustainability and environment recruitment company, has seen a 20% increase in jobs.Acre believes the rise of new job opportunities in the UK has been the result of:
The introduction of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme which enforces the measurement and accountability of organisations for their carbon emissions - creating jobs within energy management and energy efficiency.
The drive by businesses to integrate sustainability and take advantage of the opportunities it presents has created a number of senior level jobs.
The UK Government pledging its continued support for renewable energy projects within the October budget announcements.
