Abstract: The Green Technology or clean technology is the application of one or more of environmental science, green chemistry, environmental monitoring and electronic devices to monitor, model and conserve the natural environment and resources, and to curb the negative impacts of human involvement. Although it has been adopted as an important component for Sustainable Development, it has not been sufficiently tackled to this date. This literature review study presents a comprehensive comparative analysis and gives an insight into existing green skills frameworks to transform skills development for sustainable development. Moreover, to make this comparative analysis more in-depth, a matrix on existing green frameworks in chronological order is presented. It presents the main conceptual models on greening Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to support green technology industry requirements with the support of the TVET sector. Despite this, the key characteristics of the existing frameworks also discussed and stated. Furthermore, the proposed matrix encourages TVET stakeholders and green industries to work together to produce skilled workers in green sectors. In addition to this, another matrix on the empirical research on Green Skills/Technology is depicted which provides several evidences on the workplace skills most relevant in the transition toward environmentally sustainable economies. These empirical research articles fulfill the demand of the training providers, green sector organizations, industry associations and unions etc. The purpose of the matrixes is to compare the existing work done by the different researchers on green skills.
