2 The Top 5 Things to Know about Careers in Sustainability What makes sustainability such an appealing field to work in? One of the major attractions of the sustainability sector is its highly multi-faceted nature. Sustainability practitioners are rarely confined to just one area of expertise instead, they must draw upon a range of different disciplines to come up with solutions that address environmental, economic and social needs. Sustainability s focus on interdisciplinary problem-solving might be a tall order to meet, but it s also an exceptional opportunity. How many other professions allow you to make a positive difference across so many diverse areas? Clearly, there s a lot to look forward to in sustainability work. The real challenge is knowing where and how to get started. Students and professionals need detailed, relevant info on sustainability career trends, yet most available resources talk more about sustainability s theory and impact, rather than its job prospects. New research by ECO Canada is going to help change that. In our latest report, we looked at 7 top careers in sustainability, including a careful assessment of everything from average starting salaries to typical work settings. The findings from this research were then used to develop a new professional designation for environmental practitioners working in sustainability: EP Sustainability. If you ve ever wondered where sustainability professionals start or how much they typically make in Canada, we ve got the answers to 5 of your most pressing questions:. 1.) What are the actual job opportunities in sustainability? An impressive number of professionals currently work in sustainability. In fact, over 50,000 Canadian practitioners spend 50% or more of their time on activities related to economic, social and environmental sustainability. Over the past two years, most job vacancies were for sustainability specialist positions, accounting for roughly 70% of Canada s sustainability workforce. In the next 3 5 years, 84% of sustainability consulting firms expect to hire, creating about 400 new positions. A further 3,800 new jobs will be added to this number as 46% of other sustainability employers increase their staff.. 2.) How do people get into this industry? In our research, we found two distinct sustainability career paths. One path was for sustainability professionals. In this group, practitioners built their careers through degrees in business and public administration (32% of sustainability professionals), physical or life sciences (19%), engineering (13%), social sciences (13%) or natural resources and conservation (13%). The other path was for a more specialized career as a sustainability consultant. For these roles, practitioners were less likely to have a business degree, and more likely to hold a degree in physical or life sciences (41% of sustainability consultants), engineering (32%) or natural resources and conservation (20%).

3 The Top 5 Things to Know about Careers in Sustainability One other especially key finding about sustainability consultants: The majority of these practitioners (60%) were under the age of 35, demonstrating the appeal of sustainability consulting for new professionals with a sciences background. 3.) What does a typical work day look like? Like many other environmental careers, sustainability jobs can vary widely. For one of the most common sustainability careers the sustainability specialist role a typical day might encompass conducting online research on environmental regulatory updates, calculating the energy consumption for manufacturing a particular product, and presenting sustainability compliance report findings to clients, upper management or regulatory officials. To be successful in their work, sustainability practitioners draw on a number of top skills, including: Interpreting, enforcing and complying with environmental regulations and standards Implementing and monitoring sustainable development strategies and programs Partnering with stakeholders We created 7 sustainability career profiles to provide a detailed overview of common sustainability jobs sign up for a free sneak peek of the profiles. 4.) Who employs sustainability professionals? About ½ of sustainability professionals are employed in private industry, while half are employed at government and not-for-profit organizations. The top employers of sustainability professionals are governments (employing 27% of sustainability professionals), research institutions and not-for-profits (24%), large companies in manufacturing, oil & gas, mining, forestry and utilities (10%) and businesses in retail, finance and insurance (10%). 5.) How much is the average starting salary? This question is a major deciding factor when it comes to choosing a career that is not only rewarding, but also financially viable. Keeping in mind that salaries vary significantly depending on type of employer, experience level and occupation, we developed salary estimates through a series of interviews with sustainability practitioners. For those working as sustainability specialists, the mean starting salary was about $40,650, with a high-end starting salary for more experienced workers at $50,700. Sustainability consultants typically started at a higher amount - $55,760 was the average base starting salary for this role. The new Environmental Professional (EP) designation in Sustainability provides formal recognition of your skills and experience as a sustainability leader.

4 Sustainability Specialization Definition Work classified in the Environmental Professional (EP) Sustainability specialization is performed by professionals who provide strategic advice on matters of sustainability to create economic value while protecting environmental integrity and social justice. This work is done by environmental professionals whose aim is: sustainable use of resources through promotion of biodiversity and management of ecosystem health and integrity. Environmental professionals working in sustainability perform the following functions: reporting of trends over time; development and use of sustainability indicators; sustainability planning at the community, business, municipal, provincial, national, and international levels; identifying and articulating ethical and social concerns and guidelines; development of environmental/sustainability management and other forecasting/backcasting systems; and activities such as change management, strategic development, economic assessment and corporate social responsibility. At the most global level, sustainability seeks to promote a sustainable society in which integrated environmental, social and economic systems continue, and evolve optimally, over the long term.
