Over half of workers would consider changing career for a ‘greener’ role

(2 minutes to read)

Aviva: ‘Sustainability is very much on the radar for businesses large and small and it is positive news that so many UK people are bringing green thinking into their working routines, as well as their personal lives’.

As many as 58% of UK workers have said that they would look to change their current role for a ‘greener’ career.

The Aviva report ‘How We Live’, shows that this attitude is more prevalent in certain sectors – for example, this figure rises to 70% for those working in finance and engineering/building.

The research has found that some businesses are becoming greener, with 75% of workers saying their employer has made changes to improve its environmental impact in the last five years – however, another 75% believe there is still more to do.

Jon Marsh, MD, Partnerships, Aviva General Insurance, said, “Sustainability is very much on the radar for businesses large and small and it is positive news that so many UK people are bringing green thinking into their working routines, as well as their personal lives.

“The latest How We Live data shows that a great many employees are already involved in environmental initiatives in their workplace – from simply re-using cups, to limiting unnecessary travel, to making use of electric vehicle leasing schemes.

“Three quarters of workers acknowledge that their employer has made environmental progress in the past five years – but they want to do more to make a difference. This could mean actions taken in a current role or switching to a position with a more environmental focus – but the emphasis on green career ambitions is clear.”
