Two thirds of millennials favour ‘green collar’ jobs, government study finds


More than two thirds of millennials would prefer to work in a environmentally friendly job but underestimate the size and scale of the green economy, new data has shown.

Research provided by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) found that the 1,000 18-24 year old polled mostly associated ‘green collar’ jobs with the renewable energy sector.

A smaller proportion said they thought the roles of business owners, finance jobs and civil servants also contributed to the green economy. 

The renewable energy sector only makes up 11pc of the global green economy, according to FTSE Russell research, whereas energy and management efficiency industries make up some 40pc.
