More than three-quarters (77%) of young people in Asia Pacific aspire to work in the green economy within the next 10 years, according to Accenture’s Youthquake Meets Green Economy report. This means that youths are gravitating towards careers and organisations with an environmentally sustainable agenda.

The good news is that Accenture predicts the number of green jobs in Australia, China, India, Indonesia and Japan to grow by 62%, reaching 32.6 million, by 2030.

“Many companies have started by making public commitments to sustainability. Now they have to execute by prioritising green economy activities: the kind that has a primary purpose of protecting or restoring the environment while creating new employment opportunities,” says Gianfranco Casati, CEO for Growth Markets at Accenture.
