The clean energy economy is driving both growth and job creation in the United States.
Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, clean energy was one of the US economy’s biggest and fastest-growing employment sectors, accounting for more than half of the energy sector’s job growth in 2019. Similarly, climate adaptation and mitigation measures are projected to create 1.6 million net jobs by 2030 in the US alone.
The potential for the US transition towards a more sustainable future is enormous and could create tens of thousands of US jobs, boost innovation and bring about both environmental and health benefits.
At State of Green, we can connect you with more than 600 Danish partners ready to help the US realize its potential. Explore and get inspired below.
