A Green Economy is a Growth Economy: How Green Building Supports Job Creation, Workforce Transformation and Economic Recovery

In an economy where construction activity is at an all time low, green building construction has maintained its market share of non-residential buildings and has even grown in several sectors. Green building accounts for more than one-third of all non-residential design and construction and will grow to more than one-half of all construction within the next five years. By 2013, green buildings will support nearly 8 million workers in a range of occupations including construction managers, carpenters, electricians, architects, truck drivers and cost estimators, among many others.
