Green-Collar Jobs

I get lots of emails from lots of listservs…sometimes to the point that it is so overwhelming that I simply file them away. Today I had a bit of time, so I opened USGBC-NCR’s newsletter and actually read through it. I was glad I did because I found a link the following article and subsequent report: Green-Collar Jobs in America's Cities: Building Pathways Out of Poverty and Careers in the Clean Energy Economy

The movement for sustainability throughout the US is wonderful in that it is helping save the world, but it is also a great economic driver – particularly in terms of job creation and innovation opportunities.

Green jobs are available throughout the economy, but this document focuses on jobs in energy industries offers guidance on how cities can link residents to green-collar jobs.
