"Be the change you want to see in the world" Gandhi said. We are both concerned about our environment and energized by the many opportunities for innovation and change it presents to us. Taking a look at the impact of climate change and our collective ecological footprint, it is clear how the world is being affected by human growth. At this seminal time in our Nations history, clean energy, sustainable practices, and what has been termed a green collar economy must become a reality. The choices that you and I make today will create the world we and future generations live in.
There are 5 core principles that guide us:
Abundance: Creating a healthier, environmentally and financially sustainable world where there are many green choices. There are no shortage of ideas and ways that innovation and design can change the way we do things to create healthy environments both in and outside the workplace. We have designed our site with the tools employers and jobseekers need to create as many opportunities as humanly possible. We will continue to innovate and support efforts to expand and grow a green collar economy.
Authenticity & Integrity: Both the means and the end are important to us. A job posted on our site is guaranteed to have been vetted in order to ensure that it is truly a job that will make a positive difference to the environment. We are committed to aligning our intention with our offerings at all times.
Commitment: We are committed to being the number one green collar job site that is also known for its pledge of support to the creation of 5 million new green jobs by 2020. Our commitment includes contributing 10% of our profits towards greening communities and supporting green innovation.
Inquiry: Being curious about the world around us, how we and others look at things from different perspectives is something we value. We want to share our inquiry and invite you to actively participate with us in this journey. Our news and skillsbuilder pages, as well as our jobseeker and employer tools will reflect our findings.
Possibility: What is possible right now, next week, next month, next year? Coming from a place of abundance, integrity, commitment and inquiry, what is possible? From a place of possibility, we can create a green collar earth.
