Good News for Green Jobs

Good News for Green Jobs

If you’re looking to get a green job, there’s good news. Organizers of a world business summit on climate change said today that 2 million new jobs would be created in the U.S. alone if it increased its reliance on cleaner sources of energy. At the global business summit, which took place in Copenhagen, corporate leaders discussed how to help politicians negotiate a new global climate treaty for 2012. They announced that if the U.S. alone cut its electricity use by just half of 1 percent a year by utilizing wind energy and other renewable sources, over two million jobs could be created.

Jose Manuel Barroso, the EU Commission President, told the CEOs of major international corporations that a million new green jobs could also be produced in European Union countries.

“Change also brings big economic opportunities,” he said.
