Talent for Net Zero

Across the world governments are on a mission to reach net zero emissions by 2050. The built environment sector has a vital part to play in this mission. With the sector accounting for 30% of total global greenhouse gas emissions, companies operating within the natural resources, real estate, infrastructure and industrial technology space can have a huge impact on reducing carbon emissions. Yet for this to be achievable, organisations will need the right talent, leadership and skills in place to innovate and progress at the pace required.

At Granger Reis, we are passionate about sustainability and know that talent is the key to reaching net zero emissions in the sectors we work in. We have spoken to some of the leading innovators and thinkers within the built environment sector to discuss the talent needs and trends required for a transition to a net zero economy.
