One of the biggest problems many companies face, especially those in the manufacturing or energy sector, is the environmental impact their plants and shipping operations create. A sustainability consultant can work with these businesses to help suggest more environmentally sound building processes and work materials. The consultant can show ways to prevent environmental waste and energy overconsumption by helping to implement greener, smarter temperature-control or lighting systems within factories and offices. During the construction of facilities, the planning work of a sustainability consultant can be of vital importance. Facilities built within certain regulatory parameters and related to green initiatives may be subject to tax credit incentives. There is also the possibility that new facilities that fall outside of other regulations may be subject to cap-and-trade penalties related to carbon impact.
Most sustainability consultants work for private firms who specialize in business consulting, as it relates to the environment and green initiatives. Typically, these consultants have a university degree in a discipline related to environmental science and/or business regulation. Consultants typically work in an office, but fieldwork and travel are normally regular requirements of this career. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
