As the clean technology industry grows nationwide, so it grows in Snohomish County. Some of this growth comes from new technologies and new companies, some from redefining existing activity that fits within the clean tech umbrella (green, sustainable, renewable).

A recent survey by the Washington State Employment Security Department found that Snohomish County has several thousand individuals employed in ''green jobs'' classified as ''the development and use of products and services that promote environmental protection and energy security.

The Clean Tech cluster in the Puget Sound region is composed of nine major industry catagories. Energy Generation and Distribution, Non-residential Construction, Manufacturing, Architectural Services, Engineering Services, Environmental Consulting, Research and Development, and recycling and Waste.
