Summary, etc.:
From the publisher: Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), millions of dollars have been allocated to improve energy efficiency in Building construction. ARRA's substantial federal investments in building and retrofitting are likely to become a major source of revenue for suppliers of "green" products and services: For example, under ARRA, the government has authorized $4.5 billion alone for "greening" federal buildings. Clearly, building and large-scale landscaping businesses that invest in sustainable practices are poised for great success-and with success comes the need to increase the workforce. Peterson's Green Careers in Building and Landscaping is your one-stop resource for entry into the burgeoning green building sector.
