DEFINING GREEN JOBS FOR FLORIDA SEPTEMBER 16, 2009 Lila Jaber, Chair Sustainability and Infrastructure Committee Workforce Florida, Inc.
TODAY’S PRESENTATION Why define green jobs now and Workforce Florida’s role Green jobs workshop Definition of a green job Defining green jobs for Florida: The report Achievements and next steps
WHY DEFINE GREEN JOBS NOW? Alignment of federal, state, workforce, education and business goals + Lack of federal or state legal definition + Need for economic rejuvenation = OPPORTUNITY
WHY WORKFORCE FLORIDA? Empowered by Florida Legislature to create employment, education and training policy to support emerging and existing industries. Testimony of Amy Baker, Chief Economist of the Florida Legislature
CATALYSTS FOR ALIGNMENT HELP FLORIDIANS GET BACK TO WORK! Workforce efforts to meet the needs of business and job seekers Governor’s climate change and greenhouse-gas reduction initiatives
GREEN JOBS WORKSHOP PRESENTERS Jeremy L. Susac, Florida Energy and Climate Commission Rebecca Rust, Labor Market Statistics Center, Agency for Workforce Innovation Cindy Tindell, Senior Director, FPL Group J.B. Clark, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Al Stimac, Manufacturers Association of Florida
BENEFITS OF DEFINING GREEN JOBS Jobs and training Efficient and prudent use of limited public resources Federal advocacy Marketplace certainty
NECESSARY ELEMENTS OF A DEFINITION Not very different from elements of strategic plan we’re here to further develop Broad for inclusiveness Flexible for adaptability Consensus-based for buy-in Aligned with economic development priorities
OUR DEFINITION “A green job increases the conservation and sustainability of natural resources for the benefit of Floridians. This includes jobs that reduce energy usage or lower carbon emissions, and protect Florida’s natural resources. Green jobs should provide worker-friendly conditions, pay sustainable wages and offer opportunities for continued skill training and career growth.”
RECOMMENDATIONS 1.Estimate current and future projections through special industry surveys and labor market statistics to better understand the magnitude of green jobs and guide workforce development investment and training activities. 2.Conduct gap analyses to identify training programs, skills sets and industry needs
RECOMMENDATIONS, cont’d 3. Create an aligned and sustainable green workforce action plan that ensures sufficient capacity for effective programs, results in a coordinated and flexible workforce development infrastructure, and creates a feedback mechanism that ensures training programs and curricula are driven by industry’s priority workforce needs. 4. Develop a statewide communications plan, including scope, tasks and schedule that provide the public access to information about green jobs, training and workforce resources, and Florida’s online job-matching tool, the Employ Florida Marketplace.
RECOMMENDATIONS, cont’d 5. Track the return on investment of state-level workforce training projects funded through Workforce Florida. 6. Identify competitive opportunities in which Florida and its workforce regions can apply for Recovery Act discretionary funds as well as other funding opportunities.
RECOMMENDATIONS, cont’d 7. Advocate the Florida green jobs definition and green workforce solutions in forums as appropriate. 8. Work with Enterprise Florida, Inc. and the Florida Economic Development Council to establish a connection between attracting and growing green economy businesses with customized training and hiring/recruitment tools.
CONCLUSION There still are many unanswered questions What skills does the green workforce need now and what skills will it need in the future? How are other entities preparing for the green economy? How do we increase alignment to benefit Floridians and solidify Florida’s place as a national and global leader in the green economy?
NEXT STEPS Green jobs stimulus grants – solicitation for grant applications released June 2009 Labor Market Statistics Center Survey ($2 to $4 million) Submitted – decision expected late November or December 2009 State Energy Partners – Regional Teams ($6 million) Due October 20 Supporting our partners as they vie for green job training stimulus funds; keeping them informed and encouraging them to share our report with their audiences and stakeholders.
