Green jobs are sprouting up all over America, with industries like renewable energy and energy efficiency currently providing 8.5 million jobs in the United States. Mother Nature Network just reported the Top Ten Cities for people interested in the field of sustainability. San Francisco is rated at number one in the country with over 42,000 green jobs. The city recently passed $100 million worth of bonds to create sustainable jobs and businesses. The “green collar” jobs are in the energy generation sector, mostly in the solar industry, as well as environmental consulting, green tech and greenhouse gas emission monitoring jobs. 20 big construction projects have recently applied for LEED certification here. Professionals in the field earn an average salary of $58,700.
Denver, Colorado is home to Vestas Wind Systems, solar firms and companies focused on clean energy. Local institutions like the National Renewable Energy Laboratory continue to advance green technology and green-collar job opportunities, so unemployment rates in Denver are below the national average.
New York City has launched a $1 billion sustainability plan to retrofit buildings to increase energy efficiency and cut greenhouse gases. For the full list of Top Ten cities, click here.
