Question weight


Criteria met if the combined authority has a skills strategy or similar which explicitly covers how they will create the green skills needed locally.

This information could be in a combined authority's skills strategy or other strategies.


A chapter or equivalent on green skills in a climate action plan, corporate plan or homes or a building strategy would also be valid for a point.
The plan must cover multiple years.

Green Jobs and Greens Skills are ones that contribute to preserving or restoring the environment. They have a focus on either reducing carbon emissions, mproving energy and raw materials efficiency, protecting and restoring nature, minimising waste and pollution, adapting to the effects of climate change or making similar environmental improvements.
Green Jobs and Skills can be in traditional sectors such as manufacturing and construction, or in new, emerging green sectors such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. Sustainability managers in businesses, green transport officers and thermal heating specialists are all examples of green jobs.
