As the climate starts to change, so are our reconstructive efforts changing to help combat this issue. Across the country, many cities and companies are enacting policies to help combat the effects of climate change. Likewise, interest in implementing renewable energy has increased, with many projecting it’ll be more cost-effective to switch.
The construction industry has taken notice as job opportunities have grown in response due to the need to combat climate change. New projects to cut down emissions and repair and upgrade infrastructure have increased the demand for skilled workers.
