About Environmental

Environmental awareness is no longer just about having the right attitude and recycling at home – it’s also increasingly becoming good business. Climate change has been widely accepted as the defining issue of our age, and this has brought sweeping changes across the global economy, including the birth of the so-called green-collar worker.

Since Al Gore shared his Inconvenient Truth back in 2006, the environment has, rightfully, become a much more mainstream concern and working towards a career in the green economy is no longer stereotyped as a hippie or leftie pursuit. Companies of all kinds are working green issues into their corporate social responsibility charters and hiring consultants to ensure they work to the new triple bottom line: profit, people and planet.

So, if you’d rather do good in your 9–5 rather than trying to fit it around the edges, then now is the time to make the move and make a difference. Establishing sustainable practices, utilising renewable energy, protecting habitats and threatened species, and keeping humans to account for environmental impacts are just some of the things environmental professionals can focus on in their work. No matter what area or cause they are tasked with, it’s a profession that requires a unique mix of scientific understanding and the ability to strategically communicate those concepts to others, combined with passion for the cause.
