GreenJobs BC is an alliance between BC’s Environmental and Labour movements to build a green economy in BC. The Columbia Institute is the Secretariat for the project in it's initial stages.
To strengthen communication and cooperation between labour and environmental organizations in order to advance economic and environmental initiatives that: provide good green jobs; are socially equitable; are ecologically responsible; and, result in the reduction of GHG emissions.
- Advance policy Initiatives that result in greater investment in and public support for green and community sustaining jobs.
- Foster learning opportunities or discussion forums between labour and environmental organizations.
- Identify and evaluate opportunities to work with other sectors. e.g. First Nations, business, faith, social justice groups
We have an opportunity. British Columbia can protect jobs and create new good jobs – thousands of them. It can also do more – and more quickly – to reduce its carbon footprint and help avert climate change. It can do all this while making sure nobody is left behind. Good jobs, social justice and environmental justice – BC can pursue all of these by implementing a green jobs strategy.
