Your people are the DNA of your business - and with the right leaders in place, your organization is better equipped to successfully scale. It often only takes one person, in the right role, to build out a strong, sustainable team.
It's also important to note that when building sustainable teams, top talent leaders are more-so-than ever, evaluating a company's sustainability credentials as part of their decision making process when taking on a new role. In fact, according to a recent IBM report, two out of three professionals say they are 67% more willing to apply for and accept a job from organizations they consider to be environmentally sustainable. For people who are particularly passionate about climate change, this statistic increases to 80%.
The number of venture backed climate tech solutions and startups are also on the rise, adding to the competition in an already challenging jobs market. According to the State of Climate Tech 2021, during the first six months of 2021 alone, climate tech startups saw a 210% surge in funds exceeding $60 billion in raised funding.
