What is Green?

There's been a lot of talk about "green jobs" during the past few years, but what exactly is a green job

Green jobs are those that have a direct or essential impact on a product, service, or process that results in environmental benefits.

A direct or essential impact means that the job duties are very closely related to the product, service, or process itself.  Green workers help make the product, provide the service, market a product, or facilitate a process.  Workers who support the business (like an administrative assistant) or "go green" at work (like recycling office paper) aren't included in the definition of a green job.
