North America extended its dominance for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) hiring among airport industry companies in the three months ending November.

The number of roles in North America made up 58.6% of total ESG jobs – up from 47.8% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 3.1% year-on-year change in ESG roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks 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 ESG, 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.

The fastest growing country was the US, which saw 44.8% of all ESG job adverts in the three months ending November last year, increasing to 55.4% in the three months ending November this year.

That was followed by the UK (up 10.1%), Australia (up 1.6%), and India (up 1.5%).
