According to Pew Research Center, green-collar jobs are being created every day. In fact, the industry has grown 9% a year, more than twice the growth of more traditional jobs.

In a Wall Street Journal article, Joel Yudken, a member of an advisory panel for the Pew study said, “With all the emphasis in the stimulus and energy bills, there’s going to be new demand and a lot more investment in these businesses, which will mean more jobs.  It’s a growth area, there’s no question about that.”

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
