    CSE delivered yet another successful session of the Certified CSR Practitioner Program, this time in Bucharest. The Advanced Edition 2018 of the global Certified CSR Practitioner Program was held in Bucharest for the very first time on the 21st and 22nd of June. This high level professional training was fully booked and CSE managed, once again, to bring together executives from different fields from both local and multinational companies such as KPMG, Baxter Healthcare, Raiffeisen Bank and other leading organizations.

    The new GRI standards and SDGs together with the Social Return on Investment were among the key topics of the program. More than 1500 CSR directors from leading European companies have attented this leading program in the field of CSR.

    This two day workshop was designed as part of CSE’s mission to further educate professionals and enhance their knowledge on CSR in order to increase their organizations’ positive impact on society, the environment and the economy.

    Coming up next are sessions in Houston, Sept. 27-28, 2018.  CSE is a leading advisory organization in training and consulting governments, large multinationals and small-medium enterprises in more than 30 countries. CSE’s experience has serviced Fortune 500 companies, governments and institutions across diverse sectors.

    Next trainings for the year include Toronto in October, Dubai, UAE, in November, and London, UK, in December.

    The number of studies in sustainability doubles every 8 years.  The green chemistry industry is set to grow to $100 billion by 2020.  Over 43% of executives expect their companies to align sustainability goals with their corporate image.  The International Society of Sustainability Professionals lists a dozen job boards geared toward sustainability professionals.  Yes, the field of sustainability is growing.

    And so are career opportunities.  Careers in sustainability range from the highly technical to the administrative, with lots of room in between.  In demand jobs include sustainability consultant, campus directors and managers, CSR professionals, green building professionals and investment advisors.  Chief sustainability executives average over $165,000 in annual salaries.  Even entry level managers earn over $40,000 with a median salary for managers of $72,000.

    While campus sustainability director may be the hot career, opportunities are unlimited.  Just as sustainability requires a systems approach, sustainability professionals can fit anywhere in the system.  In the most recent Certified Sustainability Practitioner Program led by the Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE), professionals in Human Resources, HSE, real estate, NGOs, manufacturing, apparel, food and beverage and environmental consulting attended.  Energy companies, government agencies, NGOs and most of the Fortune 500 have been represented.

    Why would seasoned professionals and those new to the workforce take on more education?  Improving credentials can lead to a pay boost, facilitate upward mobility, ensure job security, and increase an employee’s value to their company.

    Most importantly, those acquiring skills in sustainability have an overriding love of and concern for humanity.  Whether the concern be directed toward water or food, waste or energy, human rights, employee satisfaction, livability or prosperity, sustainability practitioners work toward a better world.

    With legislation increasing year after year, stakeholders demanding attention to environment, social and governance factors, with the triple bottom line at stake (people, planet, profit), corporations and organizations need professionals ready to handle the nuances of intertwined systems.  They need employees trained to see the value-added of a sustainable supply chain and the pitfalls of greenwashing.

    Sustainability skills can come from an expensive degree or “on the job” (with inevitable mistakes and time-consuming trial and error).   CSE offers an in-person Certified Sustainability Practitioner Program, held around the world, next in Dubai, Nov. 26-27, 2017, and Atlanta, March 8-9, 2018.   The Sustainability Academy offers online, affordable, self-paced courses that range from the fundamentals to specialized topics such as Social Return On Investment.  CSE has over 10 years of experience, and Nikos Avlonas, president and founder of CSE, was recognized as a CSR Professional of the Year by PR News in 2017.

    However, you choose to secure your sustainability education, with global crises manifesting daily and increased consumer concern, you know there is and will be an endless demand for your sustainability skills.
