USGBC Predicts 8 million green building jobs and develops training to prepare the workforce

USGBC announces upbeat job projections in green building and at the same time expands mission to include educational offerings.

Find green business solutions
A new study from the USGBC (US Green Building Council) presents their projection that green building will support nearly 8 million US jobs over the next 4 years.

Please note, that doesn't say "8 million NEW jobs".

Projections are based on growth and economic impact of the total green construction market from 2000 to 2008, which the study found, contributed $178 billion to U.S. gross domestic product; created or saved 2.4 million direct, indirect and induced jobs; and generated $123 billion in wages.

The study considered the total value of green buildings and the results include workers from the architects who design them to the construction laborers who pour their foundations to the truck drivers who deliver the materials, in recognition of the how extensive the impact of green building is.

The full report can be downloaded at www.usgbc.org/greeneconomy, where one can also find other research, resources, tools and information about green building and its role in the economic recoveries of professionals, businesses and the nation.

The USGBC is growing its reach and influence in the green building industry by bolstering its commitment to education as a key component of its organizational mission toward a sustainable built environment. A new course catalog at www.usgbc.org/courses helps green building professionals find educational resources and training that support their learning needs at any level – from novice to seasoned pro.
