dc.descriptionThe following report, produced by Worldwatch Institute (September 2008), has compiled evidence of green jobs available currently and how a 'green' economy could create and transform jobs in the future. Split into three broad sections, the report covers a wide scope of issue such as what is counted as a 'green' job, the availability of green jobs now, concerns over quantity and quality, policies that should be established to regulate green jobs, economic stimulus through green jobs and measures to ensure a 'Just Transition'. The report concludes with a list of the present flourishing green job sectors, though cautions that while the potential is there for further green job growth, the challenges are still formidable.
