Green Jobs Growth

* Based on national percentage in industry.

Target

Achieve 30 percent growth in green jobs in Minneapolis by 2015 using 2010 as a baseline.

Trend Analysis

Using the results of an annual green jobs survey conducted by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics together with Minneapolis employment data, we’ve estimated that there were approximately 6,920 green jobs in the city in 2011. This represents an approximately three percent increase in green jobs in Minneapolis compared to the 2010 baseline estimate. The sectors with the largest estimated numbers of green jobs in the city include professional, scientific and technical services; manufacturing; and transportation and warehousing.
