Sequence Launches 2nd Annual Global Survey on Needs of Greenhouse Gas and Climate Change Workforce
Roseville, CA –Executive search firm Sequence Staffing and the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute today launched their second annual international survey to determine the latest workforce needs of the greenhouse gas and global climate change industry.
More than 10,000 climate change professionals from around the world have been invited to participate in “The 2010 Greenhouse Gas/Climate Change Workforce Needs Assessment Survey.” Results of the survey are expected to be released by late summer.
“Our focus is to acquire valuable data for the industry,” said Sequence Vice President Frank DeSafey. “This will help the international community better understand and quantify today’s complex needs for trained personnel measuring emissions and managing related climate change data throughout the world.”
Last year’s precedent-setting survey, “The 2009 Greenhouse Gas & Climate Change Workforce Needs Assessment,” made national headlines when the climate change experts polled indicated that the world’s carbon trading markets are extremely vulnerable to accounting scandals like those symbolized by Enron, WorldCom and Tyco.
This year’s survey will ask the climate change professionals to assess the industry’s projected growth, its training requirements and its capacity to meet the growing global need for professional greenhouse gas monitoring.
“Sequence is proud to help sponsor these groundbreaking surveys because they aid us in learning what the concerns are for leading professionals in the field and provide keen insight in the future course of our recruiting needs,” DeSafey said.
“As the leading executive search firm in the climate change field for more than 15 years, we have pioneered the way scientific and environmental communities have attained their talent, long before it became trendy and ‘green,’” DeSafey said.
The new survey will poll industry professionals, including Nobel laureates and other leading scientists, consultants, gas emissions accounting personnel and economists for clients requiring technical expertise in the climate change field, according to DeSafey.
The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute, a registered nonprofit organization, trains and networks a global community of experts who account, audit and manage GHG emissions, working on all aspects of climate change, based on world-class training and professional standards. Based in Washington, D.C., the institute partnered with Sequence Staffing because of the firm’s extensive experience recruiting scientific and technical professionals in the climate change field.
Sequence is a premier executive search and staffing firm for the environmental, climate change, engineering and construction fields, the core industries that build and maintain the world’s infrastructure, natural resources and environment.
