1M1B (One Million for One Billion), an organization developing and mobilizing India’s future-ready tech workforce, in partnership with Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail (ABFRL), has announced the launch and implementation of the green jobs and sustainability accelerator program in climate change.
The program aims to create awareness and encourage the participation of young minds in the fight against climate change. ABFRL partners with 1M1B to mobilize youth for Climate Change action.
What is a green job? According to Ananth Aravamudan, Sector Lead for Climate Action at Villgro, green jobs are livelihood opportunities that either create climate-friendly products or adopt processes that go in hand with them. India has a bright opportunity to provide employment to millions in the green economy space. Waste management, agro-forestry, micro energy systems, Carbon Footprint Management, water management services, green supply chain and logistics – are a few areas that will need massive skills. Carbon credits, green finance, and green tech are other more challenging areas that offer big potential.
