The CR & Sustainability Salary Survey 2018

21st March 2018

The ultimate sustainability salary survey returns for its 10th anniversary year!


The 2018 Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Salary Survey, undertaken by Acre, Carnstone and Flag, was launched this morning (20th March 2018) and again aims to deliver the ultimate report on professionals working in the CRS field.

It is urging employees in the sector who work in-house, as well as in external consultancies, to sign up and shed light on their salaries and benefits, responsibilities and backgrounds.

The biennial study – in its 10th year and believed to be the largest of its kind – promises to disclose extra information to give even more valuable insight.

Those who take part contribute to the clearest understanding of the professional CRS landscape in existence.

In addition to revealing earning power and skills required for success, the 2018 survey will also divulge details on diversity, budgets and team sizes as well as drawing comparisons across the previous six surveys.

  • The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete
  • It is 100 per cent confidential – no participants’ names or contact details will be published or made available to any third parties at any stage.
  • The results will be collated by the three companies and revealed at a later date, with all participants receiving a copy
