Visit an Atlanta job board, search sustainability, and you’ll find hundreds of jobs. Many are in the energy sector – from sales to consulting; technicians, HR, operations, engineering, warehouse and distribution, project managers.
The City Council has set the goal to make Atlanta leader in renewable power in efforts to fight climate change. Atlanta is a role model for urban environmental and livability initiatives. Atlanta’s Office of Resilience will be tasked with nothing short of running the city entirely on renewable energy by 2035!
Atlanta joins San Francisco, Minneapolis and St. Louis in setting 100% clean power targets. An urban center in the middle of an agricultural state, Atlanta will need a mix of conservation, generating energy from renewables such as solar and purchasing from neighboring states – greatly expanding its impact. Even transportation has a role to play as Delta tests and implements measures to limit its own consumption of fossil fuels.
These challenges mean opportunity for sustainability practitioners. There is an awareness for the need to protect the environment in the face of growth, to promote safe and healthy living. Companies and government alike recognize these are all inter-related to providing abundant energy without further deteriorating the region and the globe.
There is a place and considerable need for people who understand the complexity of sustainability and how that applies to the energy and utilities industry. CSE research shows these sectors have the highest sustainability reporting rates. CSE has worked with traditional and renewable energy utilities and manufacturers from around the world, including Exxon, Shell and Chevron.
Atlanta and much of the South is primed to experience significant growth in the field of sustainability. CSE has worked with various companies and organizations in Atlanta, including the Atlanta Regional Commission, Atlanta Motorsports Park, Exide Technologies, Home Depot, HD Supply and Coca-Cola.
CSE is proud to be part of this Southern transition, bringing its Certified Sustainability Practitioner Program (2019 Advanced Edition) to Atlanta, February 21-22, 2019.
