State Green Economy Profiles

Ian Scott on Friday, December 4, 2009 at 10:05:00 am

We've all heard a lot about the current and potential impact of green jobs and the green economy - it is campaign trail gold.  But how to define green jobs and the green economy has been problematic.  A new set of reports released by the National Governors Association (www.nga.org) helps solve that problem.

NGA's State Green Economy Profiles, prepared by Collaborative Economics (www.coecon.com), are designed to provide a detailed, empirical account of each state's current green economy.  The reports apply a common definition to green economic activity - defining a green business as one that provides products and services that do one of the following:

  • Provide alternatives to carbon-based energy sources
  • Conserve the use of energy and all natural resources 
  • Reduce pollution and re-purpose waste.

These reports can serve as a foundation for identifying your state‚Äôs competitive advantage and future growth areas.
