Creating opportunities for green jobs
Green jobs are needed more than ever as economies around the world combat and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our carbon-free plan will directly and indirectly enable new jobs, and we estimate that our commitment to 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy will directly generate over 2,000 new jobs in clean energy in Europe by 2025 and kick start an additional €2B of investment in future clean energy projects. The reforestation program will create job diversity in rural areas in Northern Spain and other regions with roles for nursery workers, drone mappers, ecologists, foresters, agriculture workers, planting crews, negotiators, and program managers.
We are also partnering with SolarPower Europe to offer introductory courses about the job opportunities in the solar sector through Grow with Google. These courses will be available in multiple languages across Europe.
