Green Jobs Hawaii

Hawaii experiences unique challenges in converting from a State that is 90% dependent on imported oil to one that meets the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative vision of being 70% reliant on renewable energy by 2030. As energy sector participants develop energy efficient and renewable energy solutions, a strategic consideration is the availability and reliability of Labor Market Information (LMI).

The Hawaii Green Jobs Initiative is part of the Department of Labor & Industrial Relations’ (DLIR) Research & Statistics Office. Launched in December 2009 with federal funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the program aims to assist the State of Hawaii transition to a greener economy. Our partners include a Green Workforce Intelligence Network composed of government and industry representatives.

The goal of the Hawaii Green Jobs Initiative is to generate baseline employment estimates and projections in which education and training providers can be confident. Products will include: occupation and skills reports for industries, industry sectors, and state and local areas; a dedicated green sector website; asset map of green employers and training providers; new career pathways and rapid reemployment tools; and training and awareness outreach activities.
