Experts agree that ambitious U.S. climate policy will create millions of jobs. But, often lost in those numbers are the specific occupations real people will hold. This tool tries to make information about common green jobs easier to access, and show how green jobs policies will benefit many people. With it, you can:

  • Explore common green jobs
  • Compare them to other jobs
  • Learn more about the characteristics of common green jobs and the people who hold them today
