Jobvine takes a look at what green jobs are and at growth over the past few years. With most governments investing millions of Dollars into making their countries greener each year, all industries are getting affected. This graphic shows how some of those industries have changed. They also examine the top IT companies and the effort they are making into saving the environment. Google has been completely carbon neutral since 2007. By 2012, Microsoft plans to reduce its carbon footprint by 30 percent compared to 2007 levels. If you are looking for a job at a top company like that its time to examine how you can become greener at your job.

1. I’ve always admired the people that design these infographics.
2. It is very interesting to notice that most of the companies on the list are companies from the IT industry. My question would be, is it because those companies are “smarter”, or because they are in an industry that CAN be turned towards the green side?

Green jobs seem to be the future for many graduating students in any major. Not only is this focus improving the environment around us, but creating jobs in the process, that’s a win win in a soon to be graduates eyes. I wonder though if companies would have made these changes without the influence of the government. It is hard for a company to look good in the eyes of consumers if they disregard the environment. I think these top ten companies, and the companies that are close behind, have made the right decision to move forward and exceed the expectations of going green. These companies prove that a corporation can do good for human kind and the environment, but still do well in the economic market.
