The Green Job Revolution: The Best Career You Never Heard Of

Bruce Wilson & Company - February, 2022

Green is the color of purchasing power, the bottom line, and a universal word for the environment.

In 2022, it’s the color of jobs.

The U.S. Government defines green jobs as: “Jobs in businesses that produce goods or provide services that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources.”

The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® green building certification criteria include categories for landscape design, landscape construction, landscape maintenance, and sustainable approaches and practices that reduce waste and improve environmental performance.

The business of landscaping and of building and ensuring the sustained health of open green spaces, habitats, parks and gardens requires the same kind of experience, expertise and discipline necessary to run any unique industry. Yet, while the public may credit the success of a thriving consumer company to a charismatic CEO, the success story of the landscape business often goes untold.

Green industry companies serve Main Street and Wall Street, and backyards across America. According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor, the services sector in which the landscape industry sits, is increasingly vital to world economic growth. Within this sector, family-owned businesses, a category that includes a large percentage of landscape services companies, account for more
than half of all new jobs created.

From the front lines to the corner office and hundreds of thousands of people and offices in between, careers in the landscape services industry provide the foundation for advancing the aspirations and goals of job seekers across all demographics looking to find a healthy work environment where ideas, imagination and creativity can thrive.

Landscape businesses are as environmentally friendly as they are people friendly. They are technologically advanced, financially strong and high performing career homes where biodiversity is the diversity of the workplace and the results of the work impact the health and well-being of the world we live in.

Whether you want to be an entrepreneur, work for an entrepreneur, lead a team, be a team player, or find a sense of connection through nature, purpose and common ground, there is an opportunity in the landscape industry waiting for you.

We’re green. We’re growing. And we’re hiring.
