Green Jobs? Prepare for this New Challenge #3

I put together this series of 12 posts during the COVID 19 pandemic.
In different ways each post give you insights into where and what to look for when considering how you can join the GREEN JOB market.
It is possible to find GREEN JOBs without having to change your career or learn new skills.
Most companies are turning GREEN in some form. BUT depending upon the company, your present career may be important to them. It often depends on what type of companies you search for and how they are turning GREEN.
Maybe you will find something that sparks, stimulates, awakens, triggers your interest to learn a new skill………….who knows!

You might be amazed by where you can find jobs………………………..

As I just stated in my last post, not all Jobs and professions may be Green, but if the company you work for is committed to the Circular Economy…… you have Voted Green.

Legend: indicated by country and how green:

Dedicated Circular

started Green
>Use WASTE as a Resource
>Prioritise Regenerative
>Start-ups in every industry
>New Industries!
>Renewable Energy
>Clean Transportation
>Sustainable Food

moved to Green
>Close Life Cycle Design
>Rethink to Sustainable Business Model
>Team up to Create Joint Value
>eco Supply Chains
>Industrial, Product Design &Architecture
>Rethink Production
>Renting or Leasing
>use co.’s WASTE

have green divisions
Business as usual, but with the following:
>Sustain & Preserve
what’s Already made
>Assess Life Cycle
>Use WASTE as a Resource
>Switch to sustainable business model
>sell / recycle unusable WASTE
>Renting or Leasing

In this post, there are a number of the BLUE companies…….

We are in a transition to Green. We need to turn all industries to Green as soon as possible and drop the ones that can not be Green.
Your profession may not be Green, but are you working for a Green Company? A company that has committed to sustainability….an Environmentally conscious company?

For Example, Honda, has been on a list of companies that went Green efficiently and smoothly since 2015. “The leading green successes have been hydrogen fuel cell powers FCX, a completely hydrogen based infrastructure, and reduction in carbon dioxide emission by 5% so far. “

So remember that even if your profession is not deep Green, you could still be voting Green by working for a company that is committed to Green = Green Jobs.

GREEN Jobs From my post: Remanufacture, Reman, Renewed

>Where there is a company that sells machine parts and/or services them, there is the POTENTIAL to re-manufacture.  
>More than 90% of the world’s existing resources are out there waiting to be reused.  This is how much of the worlds raw materials have been mined and used and maybe wasted.  
>Remanufacturing is a form of product recovery that differs from other recovery processes in its completeness: a remanufactured machine or component should match the same customer expectation as new. Remanufacturing used equipment “cores”, instead of consuming new virgin materials, brings these materials back into the market as like new with the same warrantee as they had in their first life…..Often at a percentage lower price.
