Labor dep’t employment listings to highlight ‘green’ jobs

ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION jobs have been included in the Department of Labor and Employment’s career information system targeted for launch online early next year, a Labor official said Saturday.

“We have developed (a) career information system which contains relevant information on certain occupations which also include… green jobs” to address the interests in those seeking careers in “the green economy,” Bureau of Local Employment (BLE) Senior Labor and Employment Officer John Christopher P. Lapiz said during a webinar hosted by Reboot Philippines.

According to Mr. Lapiz, the Labor department had been looking to develop a database on green jobs, careers, skills, and emerging enterprises for some time.

He said the online launch is scheduled for early next year, while green career information will be accessible on the BLE’s webpage soon, he said.

According to Mr. Lapiz, the average monthly salaries for environmental impact assessment specialists, agricultural engineers, and environmental planners are P32,000, P43,000, and P50,000 respectively, on the high end of the scale, based on information provided by consultants.

He described the transition to clean energy as “inevitable because the public was highly conscious of the impact of climate change.” — Angelica Y. Yang
