Data released by professional networking site LinkedIn showed that hiring for green jobs or green skills is lagging behind in Asia-Pacific even as hiring globally has been rising. Specifically, the report showed that green hiring in Australia, China, India, New Zealand, and Singapore fall behind Europe and the US. Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore are some of the world’s highest income economies, while China and India are the world’s two most populous countries. LinkedIn defines green jobs as roles that can be performed without green skills but typically require some green skills. The lag, however, could be temporary as it follows a global pattern where hiring rebounded strongly in 2021 as economies start to recover from the impact of the pandemic.
