Understanding the "Green" Economy

What is a "Green" industry or occupation? There are many aspects of work that could be considered green, such as new materials, methods, products, and services.

Several states and many local organizations are working collaboratively to better understand and promote the effects of clean and green technology on our economy. Following is a collection of information from those efforts. The California Employment Development Department put together a “Digest” website that includes links to “Green” reports and summaries.

Green Collar Jobs Initiatives

The high cost of energy and the growing awareness to limit carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is creating a movement to "green" forms of energy throughout the United States and the world. Further, in 2006 alone, renewable energy and energy efficiency were responsible for $970 billion in industry revenues and 8.5 million jobs.

The workforce development system can play a key role in this groundswell by building partnerships in the community that promote the development of "green" enterprises and provide the training and support needed to build a pipeline of skilled workers for these 'green-collar jobs. This article describes programs in Milwaukee, Chicago, Oakland, District of Columbia, and New York City that create economic and associated workforce solutions for this growing industry.

Green Jobs – A Framework for Action

Green jobs have garnered significant national focus this year in a host of different contexts, including Federal legislation, education, political agendas at all levels, and in the media. As a result, both public and private sectors are working to better understand this new economic phenomenon that is termed “green jobs” in order to effectively develop strategies to ensure the availability and presence of a skilled workforce. Based on ETA’s ongoing work in this area, ETA has developed a draft framework for action to help the agency organize the work that we do to support the workforce system and its customers as green jobs impact our economy. The webinar will provide an overview of green jobs policy drivers, skills changers, and occupational impacts. It will also provide an opportunity for discussion of the draft framework for action and new ways of thinking about our work.
