What are 'green skills'?The construction industry is changing. The European Union promotes a less polluting model of sustainable construction, more responsible with the environment and able to optimize the consumption of energy or implement the use of renewal sources. This new model requires specialized tasks and a prepared workforce with updated training and experience to tackle these challenges.
Updated skills and specializations in sustainable construction, new materials, insulation, sanitation, energy savings or rehabilitation with sustainable criteria, among other fields, can be considered as 'green skills'. This area records one of the greatest potential growth of employment in construction in the medium and long term in the EU.
