Finding Top Talent

The cleantech, or clean technology industry is centered around products, services and processes that lessen or eliminate negative environmental impacts through sustainable practices, and energy efficiency. Over the past few decades, cleantech has become a major area of growth, with a market estimate of $83.9 billion in 2020 in the US.  

With substantial growth in sustainability, renewable energy and green technology, organizations are starting to focus more and more on corporate responsibility. This, in turn, is driving the development of more companies centered on cleantech, energy and sustainability as well as the growth of cleantech jobs. DRI's cleantech recruiters and executive search specialists work hand in hand with organizations in the cleantech and sustainability space to recruit top talent for mission-critical roles.
