WHY GREEN JOBS?
New York City is an international leader in advancing the green industry sector though aggressive programs to curb carbon emissions and energy use, and the New York City metropolitan region has significant potential for job growth in the energy efficiency, renewable energy and green building maintenance and operations sectors. City policies like Greater Greener Building Law, Green Jobs Green New York, on-bill finance, NYSERDA and Con Edison incentive programs coupled with rising energy costs are driving labor market growth in New York City in both the near and long term.
