Everything that is good for the planet is a job, a contract, a business opportunity.Van Jones
It’s no secret that the green economy is a job creator. Solar installer and wind turbine technician are two of the fastest-growing jobs in America. We have a tremendous opportunity to connect the people who need the work with the work that needs to get done. And in doing so we’ll not only grow the economy but also build a more sustainable future for all.
But green jobs must be good jobs. Green infrastructure investments must be tied to fair labor and workforce standards, supplier diversity, and other economic measures that offer economic pathways out of poverty too. That is the only way to solve poverty and pollution together.
