The green economy is currently being defined in the State of PA. The PA Department of Industry and Labor issued a Green Jobs Report in January 2010 which defines green jobs as jobs that employ workers in producing or
offering products or services that: promote energy efficiency; contribute to the sustainable use of
resources; prevent pollution; clean up the environment; and promote the reduction of harmful
emissions. Pennsylvania’s green jobs are located, primarily, in five industry sectors:
Energy Efficiency (Sample employers: civil engineering consultants and building construction
contractors); Renewable Energy (Sample employers: wind turbine builders and electric utility companies);
Clean Transportation (Sample employers: aircraft manufacturers and transportation
management companies); Pollution Prevention & Environmental Cleanup (Sample employers: scientific research
facilities and water treatment builders); Agriculture & Resource Conservation (Sample employers: corn farms and energy consulting companies).
