Jobs of the Future
I believe thought also needs to be channelled into considering what this will mean. Let's just imagine changes to the world in these 4 areas: -
Transportation, Buildings, Resources and Services
Transportation: People will be encouraged to travel on public transport, car pool or ride a bicycle to work. Vehicles will rely less on petrol and more on renewable energy resources.
Buildings: Offices, factories, shops, and other places of work, and homes will be made more energy efficient and able to accommodate a reduction in carbon emissions. Existing buildings will need modification to accommodate efficiency with water saving devices, solar/energy panels, heating and cooling appliances. New buildings will be built with different materials and it is likely different materials need a different methodology to errect and maintain.
Resources: New systems for homes and workplaces will be created for conserving energy, maximising water usage and monitoring use of electricity, gas and water. Monitoring output of pollution per household and returning unused energy back into the national grid will be available.
Services: Let's consider the regulatory and compliance side of these changes. There will be new government bodies to introduce and monitor these changes. Advertising to carry the message of the changes. There may be financial impacts of how carbon missions are accounted for and taxed and even traded. There will be a closer regulatory regime introduced.
Jobs of the Future
There is no doubt new jobs will be created, existing jobs will be adjusted and many people will need new skills and training. It makes sense organisations will have different job titles.
