Post by: Angie Knowles, ECO Canada
When we look at the top green job opportunities out there, we usually find the same careers in high demand across multiple sectors. They are all part of the greener economy – a wide-scale shift to sustainable practices, technologies and products that’s creating new environmental jobs across all major industries. Even in those that are not traditionally considered “environmental.”
Since Canada’s greener economy clearly drives important new employment opportunities, it is vital to know the true impact of this green shift.
Are green jobs only growing in new industries, such as renewable energy or green manufacturing? Do green employers prefer highly specialized, technical expertise? What’s going on with established environmental industries – can you still find jobs in them?
We found the answers to these questions and more in our recent report, The Green Jobs Map. See them here and find out which greener economy “facts” are actually myths in the infographic below!
