In the U.S., the nation’s biggest employers are building infrastructure that can help slow climate change.
But as more and more climate-related jobs become more commonplace, they also face growing pressures to shift from traditional energy to cleaner energy sources.
A growing body of research suggests the United States may be experiencing a crisis in climate change adaptation and mitigation work.
For example, in the United Kingdom, the country’s largest employer, Siemens said last year that it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2020.
The firm’s chief executive, Martin Schulz, told employees last year, “It’s the only way we can make the most of this century.”
Meanwhile, the Department of Energy’s climate office has warned that the U,S.
will face an increasing shortage of climate-adapted equipment in 2020 due to the expected drop in the number of coal-fired power plants.
The U.K.’s Department of Climate Change said last week that it’s considering reducing the number and size of its existing energy-related climate projects by more than 60 percent.
“The future of energy is changing so fast, we are seeing that some projects will no longer be able to meet their needs,” the department said in a statement.
“It is clear that we need a significant shift in the way we work on climate, and it is time to take a look at our energy-intensive projects and make sure they are still able to adapt to the changing climate.” “
In Canada, a similar shift is under way. “

The Conservative government has pledged to invest $150 million to improve the efficiency and resilience of the countrys largest oil-and-gas sector, and has promised to cut fossil fuel emissions by 25 percent over the next decade.
Canada’s largest oil producer, Enbridge, is also planning to reduce carbon emissions by 20 percent by 2025, as it builds more capacity to capture methane, a potent greenhouse gas that can contribute to global warming.
“Enbridge has already taken steps to increase the efficiency of its gas-fired generation plants, which is expected to result in a further reduction in CO2 emissions by 30 percent by 2030,” the company said in its 2017 financial report.
Enbridge has been a leader in climate action for decades, and the company has said it would continue to lead in the clean-energy sector.
“Energy is a huge driver of the global economy, and Canada has been an active participant in climate initiatives over the past 25 years,” the firm said in 2017.
The Canadian government’s energy-efficiency plan was unveiled in 2016, and now it is widely seen as a model for other countries.
As of last year there were over 200 companies in the country that were planning to cut emissions by 70 percent by 2050.
“There are a number companies in Canada that have already reduced their energy use by 30-percent, and a number are already on track to do that,” said Peter Wrangham, a professor at the University of Calgary who studies the environmental impact of oil and gas extraction.
“What’s striking is that the cost to those companies has been so low, that they’ve been able to reduce emissions at a rate that’s far lower than what the government of Canada has said is sustainable.”
But Wranghan said there are still areas where Canadian companies can’t do enough to reduce their carbon footprints.
“I think the major problem with Canada is that their climate change plan doesn’t mention renewable energy,” he said.
“They’re not talking about the potential for renewables to become a significant part of their energy mix.”
The plan also ignores the economic and social cost of the emissions, he said, and ignores the risks to Canada’s climate.
“That’s a problem,” he added.
In the United Arab Emirates, the Ministry of Energy has also announced it would invest in the efficiency, resilience, and carbon capture of the national electricity grid, and that it will also spend $100 million to help energy companies reduce their emissions.
“One of the reasons for that is that there are a lot of other companies in Abu Dhabi that have been making the same investments in energy efficiency, and are going to continue to do so,” Abu Dhabi’s Ministry of Economy and Planning said in 2016.
“However, because of the economic challenges, the energy companies are unable to increase their efficiency.”
The UAB plan, which was announced in 2018, was announced as part of a new government plan to help the region tackle climate change, but it’s unclear what the actual cost of its initiatives will be.
In addition, the UAE plans to create a climate resilience fund to address the impacts of climate change on the country.
The fund will help the government to finance projects that will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to $20 billion a year by 2050, the government said
