Green Careers

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics defines “green jobs” as those that are focused on directly improving the environment or conserving natural resources as well as jobs that help make a business’s practices more environmentally friendly.  Calculating the size of the green economy has proved complex because of a lack of standard definitions. However, in 2011, the BLS estimated that the green economy accounted for 3.4 million jobs.

CLC offers many degree and certificate options that can prepare you for jobs in the emerging green economy.
