Business Awareness (Environmental) - Taster

The growing Green economy provides a considerable opportunity for London. As we move towards Net Zero, there will be rapid growth in green jobs as we decarbonise our homes and businesses. The research predicts that there will be a 3-fold increase in green jobs over the next 3 decades.
