Sustainability Jobs

Sustainability Job Overview

Sustainability jobs are plentiful within the world of engineering, and you can find sustainable engineers working in a vast variety of locales because of the dynamic nature of their work. They work in corporate offices, seminars, and outdoor worksites, among other destinations. Sustainable engineers work with any tools at their disposal to help solve environmental dilemmas. The most common job duties that sustainable engineers take on each day may include:

  • Preparing environmental investigation reports
  • Reviewing those investigation reports
  • Monitoring and updating reports
  • Designing projects that may bring about a solution to an environmental problem
  • Conducting reconciliations of reports
  • Providing technical support for environmental projects that are in progress
  • Updating permits
  • Monitoring the progress of environmental projects
  • Advising government agencies, companies, or individuals regarding environmental projects

Candidates who work well independently may thrive in sustainability jobs. Sustainable engineers should possess interpersonal skills, and they should hone their problem-solving skills. They should be able to collaborate with people who come from a wide variety of different backgrounds.

Sustainability Job Education Requirements

Nearly any and all sustainable engineer positions require that candidate have at least a bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering. Sustainable engineers who want to rise to the top of the profession should be licensed. That requires the ability to score well on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and the Professional Engineering exam. Other positions that may not include this level of education and experience include environmental research jobs and environmental psychology jobs.

Sustainability Job Market

There are currently over 53,200 Americans working as sustainable engineers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has estimated that there will be around 61,400 jobs for sustainable engineers in 2022. That means that there is an anticipating job growth of 15 percent, which is more than the growth that most other occupations will experience. In addition to the new jobs that are expected to be created as environmentalism inevitably becomes a growing concern, there will also be many retirements that will then provide an increase in job availability for other sustainable engineers.

Sustainability Job Salary Information

Sustainable engineers earn an average annual salary of approximately $80,890. This median salary is a figure that demonstrated that half of those who are working in this position earn less than that salary, while the other half earn more. The top 10 percent of earners who work as sustainable engineers made over $122,290 as an annual salary in 2012. However, the lower 10 percent earned under $49,510. In order to command higher salaries, one needs to gain work experience and attain a higher education such as a master’s degree.
