The Next Generation of Green Jobs: Opportunities and Training for the Green Economy
The landscape of green jobs has continued to evolve since the Bureau of Labor Statistics first launched a comprehensive study to define and track jobs that support environmental sustainability in 2010. Evidence shows that the green economy- buildings, facilities management, architecture, janitorial, renewable energy etc. will only continue to grow. As the development on green buildings and communities shifts towards higher performance, what are the impacts and opportunities on the labor force? In this session led by the U.S Green Building Council, we will explore the current jobs landscape in the context of an evolving green building industry, and how we must prepare now for the needs of the future.
