'Green shoots' sprout in Detroit

Growth of eco-friendly businesses brings much needed new jobs to Motor City after a long period of industrial decline.

    For years, the US city of Detroit has been scene as the emblem of industrial decay, but there are some companies that are bringing work back to the city.

    There has been a significant growth of "green shoots", or businesses that develop and build more environmentally friendly technologies than had been built there in the past.
