The Environmental Workforce Defined
Our research team conducts extensive labour market research using survey data, secondary statistics from large government databases, and job ad data. For purposes of analysis and classification, we subdivide the aggregate workforce as follows:
Core Environmental Workers
Core Workers participate in any industry or occupation requiring environmental-specific competencies, such as an Environmental Advisor employed by a pipeline company.
Environmental Goods and Services Workers
Example: an Accountant and an Environmental Manager employed by a manufacturing company.
