The Environmental Defense Fund has just launched its new Less Carbon, More Jobs website. The website is designed to help map the new green economy and looks at how a carbon cap will create green jobs now.
In the video above, Jackie Roberts, EDF’s director for sustainable technology, discusses the new website with Heather Holdridge of Care2.com.
The website currently has case studies available for companies in 12 states including Arkansas, Florida, Indiana and Ohio. The Environmental Defense Fund has plans to expand this map to include all 50 states. If you would like to submit a company for inclusion in this new mapping system, visit the Help Expand Our Maps
page on the EDF website.
