1. Compliance with rules and regulations is still a strong eco-job driver.

2. Eco-job growth often follows overall economic growth.

3. Climate resilience work is increasing. Disaster response, too.

4. “Sustainability” will often be assignments for employees, not new jobs.

5. The long awaited wave of eco-retirements may be arriving.

6. Employment in the clean energy industry keeps rising.

7. Is water the new energy?

8. Rising hopes for “big data” in environmental work

9. There are always jobs for rainmakers.
