Sustainability Job Listings

Sustainability in the workplace is more of a way of doing a job rather than a specific job focus. As the UN report, Green Jobs, states "many existing jobs ... will simply be transformed and redefined as day-to-day skill sets, work methods, and profiles are greened." Still, there are some websites that list positions for jobs with a SGE focus.

Job ads can be posted everywhere from the company's Web site to online newspapers to industry associations. There is no exhaustive list of job listings, but here are a few suggestions. For more suggestions contact a Career Advisor in the Career Management Center.

This guide is a general guide for those on the SGE career track. You will also want to check out  the library's Career Guide: Tips for MBAs specific to your preferred job description.


Sustainability can mean different things to different people. It can be environmental, social, and/or governance related. Figuring out where you want to focus before you begin your job search is crucial to saving time.

Begin with asking yourself: What role do you want to play in your future job? e.g. Do you want to be an investment analyst, marketer, general manager?

Examine your experience for relative strengths. e.g. If you are interested in development, which tends to be project-based, do you have experience doing project work or volunteer work overseas? Are you familiar with the sector the specific project is geared toward?

Depending upon your background and experience, you might want to start with targeting larger companies and broader sectors.
