While sustainability has become a marketable term in the corporate world the question remains about how far businesses are willing to go to embrace environmental responsibility when it is represented by a quantifiable cost. Thus far the most successful attempt at instituting an important sustainable practice has been the cap and trade market – a forum where environmental responsibility has been translated into dollars and cents. Convincing corporate executives who hide behind “the shareholders” that environmental costs deserve valuation too, is going to require a generation’s worth of educational processes inspired by regulatory mandates which may or may not ever occur.
The five career opportunities are environmental consulting, project management, resources policy advocacy, agricultural economics and resources management.
