The emerging "green economy" consists of businesses and careers that focus on developing alternative energy sources, conserving natural resources, and protecting the environment. It includes a range of traditional jobs that are being expanded or modified to meet these goals as well as a variety of new jobs created in response to specific needs, and it has the potential to drive the creation of millions of new "green-collar" careers in the coming years.

Each volume profiles 15 careers and provides all the basic information needed to understand the nature of the job: a history of the profession, key duties, education and training requirements, potential earnings, work environment, outlook for the future, and helpful resources.
