Government can meet 2050 net zero target but more skills investment is needed


A new survey by the Association for Project Management (APM) shows that 9 out of 10 project managers are confident the UK government will meet its 2050 net zero target.

However there is concern that there is a skills shortage in the sector, with 61% of the 1,000 project managers questioned saying that there were not enough project professionals in the talent pipeline in order to sustain the future delivery of net zero projects.

This follows another recent survey by the APM in which 83% of project managers believe there is a skills shortage in their sector.

The APM has called for greater clarity and commitment from the government for levelling up and net zero projects. They have also expressed the importance of not ignoring the skills shortage.

The APM plans to to disccuss possible solutions to address skills shortage issues at its summer conference in early June.
