GreenBiz State of the Profession 2016

It’s been just over 10 years since Walmart launched its sustainability strategy and General Electric launched Ecomagination. As sustainability programs mature, many of the leading corporations are making it a key part of their growth strategy for the future. But for others, programs are still in an awkward adolescence.

GreenBiz Group’s fourth State of the Profession report takes a look at the evolution of the sustainability executive and its unique role in industry. As in years past, we surveyed members of our GreenBiz Intelligence Panel to find out how much they make, where in the company they report, and what they do in the course of their job.

Join us for a free, one-hour webcast where the report’s co-authors will discuss where sustainability lives within an organization, how its leaders got there, and what projects and strategies they expect to be undertaking in the near future. They will also answer your questions, including:

  • What will it take to increase corporate focus on sustainability efforts?
  • Are we entering a period of corporate sustainability haves and have-nots?
  • Are career opportunities limited for sustainability professionals?
