Detroit GreenWorks Solutions: Creating Triple Bottom Line Impact

Using seed capital from a US Department of Labor(DOL) grant, the Detroit GreenWorks Solutions (DGWS) is a community effort to invest in Detroit’s workforce and economic revitalization through the green economy. The next wave of industrial innovation and opportunity is here, and DGWS is playing a critical part helping local businesses fill a growing market opportunity in the green economy with skilled talent from local communities – Detroit jobs for Detroit workers.

This report goes far beyond standard performance measures to both tell the story and quantify how the investment from DOL had impacts that go far beyond standard performance measures. In addition to looking at things like participant outcomes, the methodology also measured and quantified environmental, economic, and social impacts. It was written by Kysha Frazier and Tammy Coxen at Corporation for a Skilled Workforce.
