Study shows Syracuse to be a national clean economy leader!

Green jobs reportThe Syracuse Region has been ranked 8th in the nation for having the highest concentration of private-sector clean jobs! The ranking comes from a recent report from the Brookings Institution Metropolitan Policy Program, titled "Sizing the Clean Economy: A National and Regional Green Jobs Assessment". As the first comprehensive study of the metropolitan geography of our nation's clean economy, the findings publicize what has already been known in the region.

Syracuse is identified as having unique strengths in the indoor air quality, air/water purification systems, environmental remediation, environmental engineering, and green building materials segments. The study reports that the Syracuse Region has 10,000 jobs in the clean economy sector, 1,400 of which have been added over the past seven years. Such growth is attributed to the regions world-class colleges/universities, the Syracuse Center of Excellence, public support, incentives and CenterState CEO programs.
