An Exploration of Green Job Policies, Theoretical Underpinnings, Measurement Approaches, and Job Growth Expectations
This study explores the policy antecedents, theoretical foundations, and the many approaches to measuring green jobs in the U.S. It also contains brief descriptions of national and state initiatives to quantify green jobs currently in the economy, as well as their potential growth. The research preliminarily evaluates the likelihood of green job growth in non-metropolitan areas. Finally, this study identifies areas of research and investigation that need to be completed to more fully inform green job policy development and programming.
