Galloper Wind Farm is proud to announce we have signed up to the Essex County Council’s Green Skills Pledge to help the transition to net zero and upskill the workforce with green skills.
Green skills are a combination of knowledge, experience, values, attitudes and abilities that support carbon reduction and resource efficiency to increase climate resilience and enhance natural assets.
Essex County Council’s Green Skills Pledge aims to provide support in several ways, such as joining up resources, collaborating on green initiatives, sharing best practices in green skills development and contributing to the public debate on climate change. These skills are relevant to all areas of the economy, not just offshore wind, which is why it is crucial to address the green skills gap, together.
Galloper Wind Farm has always been committed to developing green skills, particularly in the younger generations, which we take an active role in delivering through our engagement with schools and our work experience and apprenticeship programmes. Signing the Green Skills Pledge will allow us to share knowledge, experience and best practices with others in a range of sectors.
“We believe in cultivating a workforce that not only meets the demands of our industry but also champions sustainability. This pledge underlines our dedication to fostering expertise, supporting our employees, and driving positive change in the fight against climate change. We are eager to collaborate, share knowledge and ultimately shape a greener future.” – Ben Donald General Manager.
