The number of roles in North America made up 55.8 per cent of total ESG jobs – up from 43.2 per cent in the previous three months.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a -4.2 percentage point change in ESG roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include environmental, social, and governance, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for ESG roles in power?

The fastest growing country was the United States, which saw 40.8 per cent of all ESG job adverts in the three months ending May, increasing to 51.7 per cent in the three months ending August.

That was followed by Canada (up 1.7 percentage points), Australia (up zero), and India (up -0.2).

The top country for ESG roles in the power industry is the United States which saw 51.7 per cent of all roles in the three months ending August.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for ESG workers in power?

Some 2.6 per cent of all power industry ESG roles were advertised in Miami (United States) in the three months ending August - more than any other city.

That was followed by Portland (United States) with 2.6 per cent, Houston (United States) with 2.4 per cent, and Chennai (India) with two per cent.
