Huawei presents a white paper on skills and jobs to accelerate the green and digital transition

The digital divide is a challenge that affects multiple areas of the industry, especially in the transition towards green and sustainable development. Whereby, Huawei is committed to addressing this concern. This is how he announced his white paper, aimed at raising awareness among European companies about the importance of developing digital skills. In order to face the growing demand for workers in the energy sector.

This is how Huawei contributes to the formation of skills for the adoption of green and sustainable energy, in an attempt to stop climate change and shorten the digital divide. Reason why, in collaboration with leading companies in the sector, they would seek to promote educational training for a successful transition towards a sustainable future. A change that is expected to significantly impact the way global challenges are faced.

Huawei leads the green and digital transition through educational training

Under the context of promoting the development of green and digital skills, AE4RIA and Huawei would join forces to organize a special session. In collaboration with the UNFCCC Global Innovation Center. Likewise, they presented the White book “Twin Skills for the Twin Transition: Defining Green Digital Skills and Jobs.” That is, Twin Skills for the Twin Transition: Defining Green Digital Skills and Jobs, whoseThe objective is to establish a framework for correct professional training.

This is a guide for educational training that promotes the development of digital professionals with an ecological focus. Hence, it introduces a new classification for these skills that would seek to retrain and improve capabilities in this field. Thus, providing clear direction for future workers to face challenges and contribute to environmental sustainability.

A tool for the green and digital transition

This report was prepared through the collaboration of the ATHENA Research Center, the AE4RIA Sustainable Development Unit, PwC and EIT Digital. Which would lead to an innovative tool to promote a transition towards digital, green and sustainable education. So that future professionals perform effectively in a constantly evolving digital world.

“Its goal is to build and disseminate the net zero technologies necessary to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.”

This was stated by Vicky Zhang (Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Huawei) and Salvatore Moccia (Head of Education and Skills at the IET Digital). In this sense, emphasizing the need for a paradigm shift in educational training, identifying the necessary skills to ensure a transition towards a green and digital future.

Facing digital and ecological challenges in the EU

This in view of the fact that digital tools are present in practically all aspects of our daily life. A change that has an impact on both a personal and business level. We are talking about disruptive technologies that become a clear example of this new paradigm. Just look at the rapid expansion of AI around the world, revolutionizing the way the industry operates.

However, to ensure sustainability, it is essential not only to address the digital divide, but also to focus on the development of sustainable energy. A need driven by the energy demand that exists in the industry, whose role is crucial in preserving the environment. For this reason, Huawei's report has two objectives: reducing environmental impact and improving digital productivity.

Increase in demand for workers in the sustainable energy sector

For this reason, it emphasizesin Europe's lack of capacity to address not only the digital divide, but also ecological needs. For this reason, it is imperative promote the development of digital skills, ensuring training that prepares people to face future challenges. A fundamental requirement in an increasingly interconnected world.

“The color of energy is green. But green energy only makes sense if we can store it (…) We need balanced development in the digital sector to accelerate the green transition everywhere.”

This is according to Dr. Barbara Botos (Ambassador of the Hungarian Ministry of Energy), who highlights the growing importance of the sustainable energy sector and its impact on job creation. In fact, it is expected that one million jobs will emerge in this field by 2025. Huawei recognizes this need by increasing training offerings for this growing industry.

Huawei seeks to address ecological challenges and the digital divide

This makes it clear that The development of digital skills is increasingly crucial, both in young people in training and in professional adults. A need accentuated in the EU, where more than 75% of companies expressed difficulties in finding workers with suitable skills. Again, emphasizing the importance of investing in educational programs that promote learning aimed at the labor market.

This is how Huawei's white paper would help promote the green and digital transition in European industry. Through a comprehensive approach that contributes to closing this gap, allowing more people and companies to access technological benefits. At the same time, they promote the adoption of sustainable practices to address the needs of the energy sector.
