Are you at the dawn of your career in sustainability, or perhaps you’re mid-career and looking to incorporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) aspects into your work? Maybe you’re unsure of where to start.
In recent times, there’s been a surge of individuals seeking to infuse more purpose and ESG into their roles. They aim to be part of the historical shift towards creating solutions for a more sustainable world. If you’re one of these forward-thinkers, here are four tips to help you seize opportunities and advance sustainability in your career.
1. Begin Where You Stand
In your current role, seek out existing opportunities where you can add value. What is your company currently missing? It could be a sustainability policy, a green audit, or perhaps the integration of ESG into your interactions with investors, employees, or other stakeholders.
2. Understand Best Practices
Research what best practice looks like in your industry and compare it to your company’s approach. Identify the gaps and determine whether bridging them would add value to your business and stakeholders.
3. Share Your Vision
Communicate your ideas with others who also value sustainability. Their interest, feedback, and support can be invaluable.
4. Invest in Coaching
Consider investing in coaching to help manage your mindset. This can keep you moving forward, even when you encounter obstacles, rejection, and objections. Having someone who believes in you 100% can make these challenges easier to overcome.
