Green career opportunities abound. These include jobs in a wide range of new industries—from environmental consulting, to green product design, to clean technologies, such as solar and wind energy, as well as jobs in the public sector and traditional industries – such as engineering and real estate – that are increasingly focused on issues of sustainability.
To support students and alumni pursuing careers in corporate sustainability, the Global Green Initiative works in conjunction with IBS Career Services by hosting job fairs, networking events and other recruiting activities.
