Two years of discussion and research since COWS and partners released Greener Pathways: Jobs and Workforce Development in the Clean Energy Economy, we’ve concluded that developing a comprehensive, comprehensible map of “green” credentials is virtually impossible. And that impossibility motivates our interest in moving toward a more coherent national system. Greener Skills, our follow up to Greener Pathways, outlines an American skills agenda and calls for a better, stronger, greener workforce system to support it.
