The capital will boost employment in the renewable energy sector with policy and financial support to tackle job pressures and improve the city's environment, according to the labor authority.

The government will come up with more jobs in fields of environmental and ecological protection work, as well as the production and service of green products, said the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Human Resources and Social Security on Monday.

"The capital started to explore creating jobs related to green industries two years ago," said Zhang Xinqing, director of the bureau. "Besides tackling the problem of job shortages, the city's environmental pollution will also gradually be under control."

Some 24,500 green jobs have been created by the end of last year, a great relief of employment pressure, says Zhang.
