The demand for highly educated young talents in the field of new energy/environmental protection has increased significantly.As more and more of his friends wrote “low carbon” in the title of their graduation thesis, whether they majored in civil architecture or fashion design, Liu yuzhao felt a wave of green sweeping the whole society.Liu Yuzhao is a master of science graduate of The Sino-British International Low Carbon School of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2021.During her three years at the country’s first low-carbon college, her courses covered low-carbon energy, carbon resource recycling, and sustainable development policies.At a time when low-carbon economy is becoming increasingly prominent, this learning experience has added weight to her career choice and reshaped her perception of low-carbon development.”I didn’t use sea hunting last year, so I didn’t get many offers, but I got all the positions I wanted.”Most of our classmates in the same school have five or six offers in hand and don’t worry about jobs.”Liu yuzhao told China Business News that compared with her undergraduate degree in thermal engineering, fewer of her graduate students went to coal power plants and other traditional energy companies, while more of them went to new energy, green finance, environmental protection consulting and other emerging industries.According to the “2021 Employment Trend Report of Fresh Graduates” released by BOSS Zhipin, under the goal of “carbon peak and carbon neutral”, the demand for well-educated young talents in the new energy/environmental protection field has increased significantly, with a growth rate of 225.4% over the same period, much higher than other traditional industries.CBN reporters searched related job platforms and found that many jobs related to carbon emissions are in demand in the energy, automobile, real estate, computer and finance industries, with monthly salaries of more than 10,000 yuan.There are even some well-known listed companies offering high-paying positions of 20,000 to 40,000 yuan per month to compete for low-carbon related professionals.Low-carbon talent is “hot”, thanks to the rapid development of the industry.In July 2021, the national carbon emission trading market was officially launched, and more than 2,000 key emitters in the power generation industry were included in the first implementation cycle of the national carbon market.In addition, building materials, steel and other eight key industries will also be included.The “carbon market” costs enterprises with high carbon emission in real money, and creates a broader space for enterprises actively developing low-carbon economy.Data from Tianyan shows that there are more than 1,500 enterprises related to carbon trading in China.In terms of registered capital, enterprises with more than 5 million yuan accounted for 51.3 percent.More than half of them were founded within five years.Instead of joining an energy company like most of his classmates, liu, an engineering student, chose to work for the Shanghai Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Center.It is a consulting agency for major government policy planning and research, enterprise energy conservation and environmental protection planning and evaluation projects.She told reporters that she chose the job because of an experience she had while studying for a double degree in carbon finance in the UK last year.”When I do group discussions at British universities, I find that my foreign classmates know very little about the Chinese government’s efforts to reduce climate change. They mistakenly believe that China’s environment is very polluted.At the same time, Chinese companies generally do not participate in carbon disclosure initiated by foreign third parties, leading them to believe that Chinese companies are also doing a poor job in reducing emissions.”When Liu tried to explain it to the students, he couldn’t come up with a convincing empirical case.This made her secretly determined to contact more “down-to-earth” projects and show the world a complete and comprehensive story of China’s emission reduction.Photo: After joining the company, Liu Yuzhao participated in the investigation of the disposal and utilization of solid waste in the power plant, and understood the changes and difficulties of the enterprise.After joining Shanghai Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Center, she also found the answers to many puzzles in the past.”Only accept engineering training before, I sometimes feel the technology research of confusion: although there are already exists in the field of study a variety of advanced way of efficiency, but it can’t really be put into market, the utility of play to the technology, and widely used technology in the market often seem very out of date in the field of study.”Liu yuzhao said that she has also communicated with students studying policy and law, and they often feel powerless: because climate change is a complex problem that requires long-term cooperation, the effects of current policies often take a long time to show.After several projects, Liu yuzhao found that “policy, economy and technology are indispensable.Only by taking turns and adjusting each other can we drive forward low-carbon emission reduction.”Lack of policy support, high-tech will not be promoted for mass production due to lack of investment and high cost;In the absence of technological innovation, sustainable development policies will not be implemented due to the lack of practical solutions.Environmental and energy issues are not only scientific and technological problems, but also subject of policy and economic research.On the eve of the Spring Festival in the Year of the Tiger, Liu Yuzhao returned from Shanghai to his hometown in Suzhou.On New Year’s Eve, as she sat on the sofa with her father, he urged more than once, “Do a good job, you can do a lot of work.”Liu yuzhao’s father was a senior engineer at a coal plant, and she got more strength from his words.
