The 5 Best Cities to Land a Green Job

San Francisco is also a great place to work, appearing on many "Top Ten Green Cities" lists. More than half its commuters get to work on the city's excellent public transportation system. It has the country's highest rate of municipal waste diversion from landfills -- an epic 70%. And it is Top Ten in another way: Its residents produce an average of 9.07 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) annually, the seventh best score in the U.S. according to the EarthLab foundation. Green tech can only get better in San Francisco, where 20 big construction projects have applied for LEED certification and voters recently approved $100 million in revenue bonds to support renewable energy. Oakland is not just San Francisco's poorer neighbor across the bay; it is a clean-tech powerhouse in its own right, with 17% of its energy from renewable sources and a zero waste/oil independence goal for 2020.
