Book of References Organization
The Greening of the World of Work: O*NET Project’s Book of References includes references used in developing the report
Greening of the World of Work: Implications for O*NET-SOC and New and Emerging Occupations. This book of references is
organized by the 12 green sectors identified in our Greening of the World of Work: Implications for O*NET-SOC and New and
Emerging Occupations report, in addition to one “general green” category for references related to the green economy as a whole.
Within each section, a description of the sector is given, followed by a table listing all of the green references we have researched
within that sector. The tables are organized by 4 columns: Title, Source, Reference Type, and Web Address. The “Title” column
provides the title of the reference (e.g., report title, book title). The “Source” column provides information on who wrote the reference
(e.g., report author, book author, organization). The “Reference Type” column provides information as to what type of reference is
listed (e.g., report, book, webinar, source article). Finally, the “Web Address” column provides a link to where the reference can be
found on the Internet. An asterisk (*) next to a reference indicates the reference can be found in multiple sectors.
Following the reference table within each section, we provide a supplemental reference table listing industry associations, trade
publications/journals, university/community college programs, training providers, government groups, business sites, and job search
sites we consulted to research additional information for each green sector. These supplemental tables are set up like the reference
tables; however, there is no “Title” column related to a title of a book or report.
Lastly, immediately following both types of tables within each sector, we provide summary statistics related to the number and types
of references we used in our green economy research.
