The authors investigate the link between environment-related innovation and job creation at firm level. Employing Italian data on 4,789 firms, matched with patent records for the 2001-2008 period, they test whether “green” innovation has a positive effect on long run employment growth. Results show a strong positive impact of “green” innovation on long run job creation, substantially greater than the effect of generic innovations
