In BC, we are working to protect our communities from climate change by planning for the future. That means lowering carbon pollution and using more clean, renewable, innovative energy.
By 2028 we will see more energy efficient buildings, more clean energy, less pollution and less waste in landfills. That means new more efficient ways of doing things, across B.C.
So, if you work in the building trades, you’ll be thinking about how to build in energy efficient ways. You might be installing more heat pumps than ever before. You might be working with brand new types of engineered wood developed by a local forest product company.
If you work in agriculture, manufacturing or natural resources, you might see ways you can help lower carbon pollution and address climate change. Perhaps you work in education, and you’re teaching kids the skills they need to get these jobs. Or maybe you work in science, engineering and design and are creating computer models or materials that help reduce impact on our natural world.
As new industries expand in areas like clean energy and working with electric vehicles, people need to be prepared for the opportunities.
And as government develops policy to support good jobs and new opportunities, we need to ensure everyone is aware of what those good sustainable jobs could look like.
We need you to tell us more about the opportunities that could be available to you, your family and community.
When you think about ‘green jobs’, what do you think of? What comes to mind?
What practical steps is your workplace taking to make things more energy efficient by reducing pollution?
