What does a 'typical' environmental role look like?

A typical environmental role would have you responsible for the environmental performance of an organisation.

The wide remit of the role will likely include the evaluation of the whole business’ operations through the undertaking of environmental audits and assessments, the outcome of which will help you determine where improvements can be made.

Ensuring compliance with the appropriate environmental legislation across the organisation will also be vitally important to the role. Promoting greater sustainable development through the growth and ongoing monitoring of environmental strategies will be significant.

A large part of any environmental job will involve gaining buy-in from the wider organisation to operate more effectively and as a result have a greater impact on the environment.

Why are environmental jobs important?

Environmental jobs are crucial in a warming world. Many environmental jobs ensure that organisations operate more effectively and they have a positive impact on the environment.

More than ever, environmental professionals are crucial members of their businesses. They work to ensure that businesses become more environmentally sustainable and that we can work towards living and working in a greener, safer world.

This indicates that environmental professionals are essential to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The aim of many environmental jobs is to:

  • Reduce CO2 emissions

  • Enhance sinks of greenhouse gases

  • Build resilience of human and ecological systems

If these goals are met, environmental professionals will work towards creating a more sustainable future.
