## Creating a Sustainable Future with Today’s and Tomorrow’s Experts

As extreme weather events continue to impact vulnerable populations across the globe, it is imperative to focus on building positive environmental and social resilience. To achieve this, a multi-faceted approach is required, including preparing the workforce for a greener future, establishing strategic cross-sector partnerships, and equipping individuals and organizations with the necessary tools and technology to accelerate sustainable action.

### Equipping the Current and Future Workforce with Green Skills

According to recent research commissioned by IBM, a substantial percentage of business leaders anticipate a heightened emphasis on sustainability skills in their hiring processes, along with increased investment in sustainability training. Recognizing the existing skills gap in technology and sustainability, IBM is addressing this through the provision of free training on IBM SkillsBuild. This initiative offers courses such as “Sustainability and Technology Fundamentals,” “Data Analytics for Sustainability,” and “Enterprise Thinking for Sustainability,” allowing learners to explore the intersection of technology and sustainability. Upon completion, learners receive credentials recognized by employers, thus enhancing their employability.

### Uniting Sustainability Experts in Strategic Partnerships

Addressing significant challenges like the green skills gap and environmental issues demands collaboration. IBM’s award-winning pro-bono social impact program, the IBM Sustainability Accelerator, brings together experts from diverse sectors to work on projects aimed at enhancing the resilience of vulnerable populations to climate change. Notably, the program has partnered with innovative organizations to support projects related to clean water and sanitation, among other sustainability initiatives, demonstrating IBM’s commitment to providing USD 30 million worth of services by 2025.

### Supporting a Just Transition for All

IBM is dedicated to empowering communities with the skills, tools, and support necessary to adapt to environmental hazards. By democratizing access to sustainability education through IBM SkillsBuild, the company aims to enable the next generation of experts to apply advanced technology for environmental preservation and protection, while strategic partnerships complement these efforts toward a more sustainable future.
