This week the State of Michigan released a 2009 Green Jobs Report.
Click here to download the report (link at bottom).
The report offers a number of recommendations. Please add remote collaboration to the top of that list. Technology transfers, both into and out of the State, will be essential to a vibrant green economy in Michigan.
There are viable and green economic models emerging in all corners of the US. Additionally, some of the most sophisticated sustainable business practices and experimentation are happening outside the US; most notably in the European Union, Japan, and Australia.
Michigan’s green economy will grow along with the global green economy. With investment in remote collaboration technologies, Michigan can become a vital source and destination for the best green innovations.
