ESG jobs in India up by 223% since 2019: Report



According to a report by Indeed, job opportunities in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) sector in India have witnessed significant growth of over 223 percent between April 2019 and April 2023.

The most substantial increase in job postings on the platform occurred between April 2021 and April 2022, with a remarkable growth rate of 109 percent. However, the previous year experienced a decline of 22 percent in job postings for ESG positions.

The report suggests that while sustainability played a crucial role in organisational goals during the pandemic, it may have stabilised in the past year, leading to the decline in job postings. This indicates a normalisation of the job market in this segment following the post-COVID growth surge.

On the other hand, jobseekers have shown positive interest in ESG roles. Job searches for sustainability positions increased by 31 percent between April 2022 and 2023, marking the highest growth in the past three years. Overall, there has been a 13 percent increase in interest from jobseekers in sustainability roles over the same period.
