Green Jobs

bicycle-on-the-green-1559601A green job, also called a green-collar job is, according to the United Nations Environment Program, “work in agricultural, manufacturing, research and development (R&D), administrative, and service activities that contribute(s) substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. Specifically, but not exclusively, this includes jobs that help to protect ecosystems and biodiversity; reduce energy, materials, and water consumption through high efficiency strategies; de-carbonize the economy; and decrease or altogether avoid generation of all forms of waste and pollution.”[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_job

Here are some links to where you can find some Green Jobs in BC and beyond. Check out this link for National Geographic’s slide show of 11 of the fastest growing green jobs. April is Earth Month, and we will publish several ‘green job’ posts then as well.
