The green transition requires investments in updated skill sets to master green technologies and reduce the environmental footprint of activities. This report aims to support the implementation of the European Green Deal, the European Industry Strategy and the recently adopted European Skills Agenda for Sustainable Competitiveness, Social, Fairness and Resilience in the area of the EU citizens' skills necessary to guarantee a smooth twin digital and green transition. This study underlines the need to develop a more encompassing system to identify and update the necessary sustainability (instead of green) competences critical to perform sustainability-related jobs and other jobs in a sustainable manner.
