Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time, and as a climate company, your hiring decisions can make a huge impact. That's why we're excited to launch our new Climate Hiring Playbook! It's packed with everything you need to know about finding, attracting, and hiring top climate talent.
Last week we hosted a webinar on making your job a climate job with panelists from Project Drawdown, Climate Club, Brown Girl Green, and LinkedIn.
How To Make Your Job a Climate Job:
🌱 Be the voice of your company! Speak up about changes you would like made. 🌱 Make connections with the decision makers and leverage them for climate action. 🌱 Get involved with your organization's green employee resource group, if you don't have one, try to get one off the ground. 🌱 Use your professional development stipends for certifications/courses and apply that knowledge when pleading your sustainability case.
Soil As a Climate Solution! Soil, yes soil, is one of the most critical natural resources and solutions to climate change!
The problem? There is too much CO2 in the atmosphere and not enough in our soils. Since the industrial age, soils have lost 20-60% of their carbon.
We are preventing some of this harm by transitioning to regenerative agriculture practices. Many companies are also working to enhance soil sequestration abilities, pull carbon directly from our atmosphere, and allow it to serve as a carbon sink.
