In February 2009 the Austin Chamber of Commerce began efforts to coordinate a community-wide approach to green job education and training. The Chamber’s Business Retention & Expansion team coordinated a “Green Job” Task Force to coordinate regional workforce training issues for the Austin and Round Rock areas of the state around the numerous opportunities in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors.
This Task Force report is a Community Roadmap that identifies, defines and sizes green collar job opportunities specifically for the Austin region.
Although the data contained in the report is geographically-specific, the featured strategies and plans may serve as models for the many communities and regions with similar circumstances.
