• Description

The Green Transformation Cycle, a new data-driven framework developed as a part of the CREST Initiative by Jobs for the Future (JFF), in partnership with the Burning Glass Institute (BGI), with support from Ares Charitable Foundation, advances our nation's progress to a green economy by prioritizing environmental sustainability as well as equitable economic advancement.  

Our approach—including an analysis of nearly 200 million online job postings—demonstrates that when the integration of current green skills into various occupations is considered, green jobs are more prevalent than commonly thought. This report leverages the Green Transformation Cycle to illustrate the economic transformation currently underway, and to better shape workforce training programs, employer talent pipelines, and emerging legislation to support the urgency of a just transition to a green economy.
