"Jobs are green when they help reduce negative environmental impact ultimately leading to environmentally, economically and socially sustainable enterprises and economies. More precisely green jobs are decent jobs that:

(1) reduce consumption of energy and raw materials;
(2) limit greenhouse gas emissions;
(3) minimize waste and pollution;
(4) protect and restore ecosystems.”
