Green Jobs Study

To better understand the domestic job potential from green buildings, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) asked Booz Allen to estimate the number of jobs associated with the green building market. Recent articles and studies have tried to estimate the number of “green collar jobs” that will be created from various national energy proposals, but few studies have focused exclusively on green building employment opportunities. This study contributes to this effort by calculating the number of jobs supported by the total green building construction market. The study also estimates the number of jobs that can be attributed to USGBC as a result of developing the LEED rating system.
