We're thrilled to announce that the 2020 CR Salary & Market Survey is officially live! ​The largest of its kind, this year's survey was completed by over 1,500 corporate responsibility & sustainability (CR&S) professionals globally.

The data gathered has since been analyzed and presented to provide comprehensive insight into the salaries & benefits, responsibilities and backgrounds of people working in the CR&S sector – both in-house and for external consultancies. Download your copy today to learn more about the following key topics:

  • Diversity in the workplace and the gender pay gap

  • Key competencies required in the profession

  • An understanding of the varied backgrounds of CR & sustainability professionals 

  • Career progression within CR & sustainability

  • Benchmark salaries and benefits by sector, location, gender and seniority

  • The CR Salary Survey was originally launched in 2008 by Acre, Carnstone and Flag with the aim of supporting CR&S professionals to gain a better understanding of the growing areas of CR&S, and how sustainability fits into the modern business landscape.

Now in its 12th year, it is more important than ever before to raise awareness about the importance of sustainability within corporate organizations, along with the impact that the sector has on both people and the planet.

“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,”

says Andy Cartland, Founder at Acre and founding partner of the survey.

“As such this year’s survey comes at a critical junction and we hope it creates intelligence which supports the profession’s ongoing development and growth.”

Expanding upon previous years, the survey has taken an increasingly global focus and can now be viewed/downloaded in either pounds (£), euros (€) or US dollars ($). To do so, please visit:
