Information You Need: Green Jobs

Interested in knowing more about "green" jobs and the "green" economy? The following reports may be particularly useful for those of us in New York State.

Cleantech: A New Engine of Economic Growth for New York State
From the New York City Investment Fund, January 2007

Central Upstate New York’s Green Industry Sector: Opportunities and Prospects
Prepared for Metropolitan Development Association of Syracuse and Central New York and Creative Core’s Regional Green Team, November 2007

Current and Potential Green Jobs in the U.S. Economy
From the US Conference of Mayors, October 2008
Includes statistics on the number of existing and projected green jobs by metro area.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. For more, check out California’s Employment Development Department's Digest of "Green" Reports and Studies - they are doing a great job keeping track of reports from around the country.
