Sustainability is essential to our ability to survive as a species. As more concern grows for the state of the planet and more evidence is released at the urgency with which we need to act to avert more environmental and social crises, sustainability is becoming more central to the way we live, work, and do business. Here are three reasons why you should choose a career in sustainability:
You, Will, Make a Difference
There’s no doubt that by choosing a career in sustainability, you will be able to contribute to positive change. You will be part of the growing solutions to make our world a better place by making companies more sustainable and will contribute to the preservation of precious resources for the benefit of all life on the planet. The more people pursue a career in sustainability, the better we can tackle our ecological crises.
You Will Love Your Job
A career in sustainability can provide a great deal of emotional, psychological, and financial satisfaction. It is incredibly rewarding to be a part of social and environmental progress and to witness how your job is having a direct positive impact on the way the world works. Please rephrase in a way that we don’t highlight the financial gains that much – financial gain is important but it should not be the primary incentive. Perhaps emphasize more the emotional and psychological benefits and skip the finance part altogether.
You Can Enter Any Industry
A career in sustainability is no longer isolated to being a sustainability consultant, or similar. As the job market expands and more companies adopt sustainability practices, individuals who have studied a sustainability degree are becoming highly sought after in every single industry. From fashion to tourism, to tech, to food and beverage, you will be able to enter the industry you are most passionate about.

Sustainability is the Future
The need to be more sustainable is becoming more in demand by consumers and businesses alike. The state of our environment and social systems, and the arrival of Covid-19 have made more and more people aware of the need for humanity to change course. In the future, it is likely that no company will be able to continue without a committed and authentic focus on sustainability. Sustainability isn’t going anywhere. In fact, its presence will only grow – and with it a great demand for sustainability experts.
