Defining Green Industries, Business, Occupations, and Jobs

Posted by Margaret Lamb - On February 18, 2010 (EST)

In the last two to three years, individual states, consortia of states, the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), the Employment and Training Administration (ETA), the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and non-governmental organizations have actively pursued a better understanding of the dimensions of our nation’s emerging Green economy. This included identification and review of the available literature and legislation, a collegial sharing of information and ideas, and some pioneering state level Green industry and occupational surveys. This Webinar will provide essential information that will benefit all of the Green Jobs - State Labor Market Information Improvement grantees, others states, and the workforce development system as they plan the next steps to address the employment and training needs to support the success of the economy’s energy efficiency and renewable energy sectors.
