​Today Acre, Carnstone and Flag, launched The CR and Sustainability Salary Survey 2020.The growing areas of corporate responsibility and sustainability have always been difficult to define, and the survey’s purpose is to provide a clearer view of how corporate responsibility and sustainability professionals fit into the modern business landscape.

Now in its eighth year, the survey has been developed to provide a comprehensive insight into the salaries and benefits, responsibilities and backgrounds of people working in the sector - both in-house and for external consultancies. Last year’s survey was completed by over 1200 professionals and this year the results aim to provide a deeper understanding of the broader corporate responsibility and sustainability sectors around the world to provide unique and valuable information for you and your fellow professionals.

Andy Cartland, Founder at Acre,“We have seen dramatic growth in the CR/S job market over the past two years - a greater acceleration than ever before. An indication perhaps that momentum is building to address the global challenges humankind faces. As such this years’ survey comes at a critical junction and we hope it creates intelligence which supports the profession’s ongoing development and growth. We would like to thank our distribution partners WAP, 3BL, Duurzaam Ondernemen, Climate Cocktail Club and Walk of Life who are helping us circulate this key survey throughout the sector”
