Sustainability Jobs

Environmental Sustainability Overview


Environmental Sustainability jobs are held by professionals who help align business operations with strategic goals concerning environmental responsibility. The sustainability career field is a broad one, but most jobs focus on lowering a company's impact on the environment and improving its reputation for corporate responsibility within the community it serves. For example, sustainability management skills can be used by facility operators to significantly reduce water and energy consumption and by procurement agents who plan for the maintenance of company assets. Bonus benefits for companies that employ sustainability professionals are often enhanced operational efficiency, greater profit margins and possible tax breaks.

Environmental Sustainability Education Requirements


Since the environmental sustainability career field includes various functions, the various education requirements to work in this field can also differ. The majority of Environmental Sustainability jobs fall within the functional areas of management, engineering and science. Sustainability Management Professionals who help generate strategic environmental policies and plans usually have at least a business or an environmental science degree at the undergraduate level. Environmental Engineers who introduce technical solutions to solve conservation issues often have industrial or environmental engineering degrees. Scientists who conduct research that contributes to improved sustainability generally have advanced degrees in biology or chemistry.

Environmental Sustainability Job Market


Dwindling natural resources coupled with growing populations practically ensures a global demand for sustainability careers in businesses operating in all industries. Competition for desirable sustainability jobs is increasing as the sector matures. For example, employers are no longer interested in candidates who are motivated by their passion for environmental issues. They prefer to hire those who demonstrate the hard, technical skills that will help their companies become leaders in this burgeoning field.

Environmental Sustainability Salary


Just as degree requirements for sustainability careers vary by function so do associated salaries. For example, sustainability managers who plan and design environmental initiatives for community development projects or corporations and hold positions like Operations Managers earned a median annual salary of $95,440 in 2012. Alternately, the median annual income for Environmental Engineers in 2012 was $80,890.
