florida s green jobs definition
Florida’s Green Jobs Definition

“A green job increases the conservation and sustainability of natural resources for the benefit of Floridians. This includes jobs that reduce energy usage or lower carbon emissions, and protect Florida’s natural resources...”

Source: Workforce Florida, Inc., Sustainability/Infrastructure Committee, Defining Green Jobs for Florida, June 2009.

survey definition of green jobs
Survey Definition of Green Jobs
  • A green job is one that directly produces green products or directly provides green services in any of the following five green sectors:
    • Produce or manufacture renewable energy
    • Increase energy efficiency
    • Conserve natural resources
    • Prevent, reduce, and clean up pollution
    • Produce clean transportation and fuels
survey definition of green jobs continued
Survey Definition of Green Jobs, continued
  • The definition attempted to include only green “production” and exclude green “practices” (e.g. recycling facility vs. paper recycling by office workers)
  • Florida’s definition of green jobs attempted to exclude indirect and support green jobs
    • An accountant at a wind turbine manufacturer is not counted as a green job because the accountant does not directly produce a green product or a service and does not need to possess any special green skills (therefore does not need any special new green training)
survey design
Survey Design
  • Surveyed just under 60,000 Florida business locations (establishments)
  • Selected a stratified random probability sample by 22 industries by seven employment size classes
  • Achieved a response rate of 83.2 percent (excluding out-of-business and unreachable establishments)
florida survey results
Florida Survey Results
  • Approximately 9,000 establishments are green (1.5 percent)
  • There are just under 45,000 green jobs in Florida (0.6 percent of total employment)
  • Employers expect to add approximately 4,000 green jobs from 2010 to 2011
  • Estimated growth is 8 percent (in comparison, the Florida economy is estimated to grow by 1 percent)
