What is a green job?
A green job is a job within an organization that aims to protect the environment or within an organization that is interested in processes with positive environmental outcomes. A green job can be classified as follows:
- Professions that require environmental skills, knowledge, experience or competencies in order to produce products or deliver services that have an environmental benefit (e.g., architects and land use planners who incorporate sustainability into designs, air quality engineers and conservation officers)
- Professions that may not require specialized environmental skills but result in an environmental benefit (e.g., construction or trades workers that apply knowledge of standard construction techniques while completing green projects, manufacturing production workers, and companies that produce environmental goods)
- Professions that support organizations in the natural resources sector that work toward positive environmental outcomes (e.g., communications, marketing, administration, project management, engagement, sales, and business analysis)
