Resource Summary

This toolkit includes principles, goals, outcomes, strategies, indicators, and examples that can inform best practices for making race, gender, and economic equity a priority in green-collar job creation. While not specific to adaptation, this toolkit provides guidance for considering equity in green job initiatives more broadly.

This report draws on the non-profit Green For All’s definition of green-collar jobs, which states that green-collar jobs are “well-paid, career track jobs that contribute directly to preserving or enhancing environmental quality. If a job improves the environment, but doesn’t provide a family-supporting wage or a career ladder to move low-income workers into higher-skilled occupations, it is not a green-collar job.”
