Housing and commercial buildings

There will be plenty of green work for creative types especially when it comes to designing sustainable buildings. An increasing base of clientele in both residential and commercial real estate desire sustainable buildings for a myriad of reasons from cost savings to health to ethos.

Clean energy

Mitigating environmental harm largely centers around one central theme: energy. According to the US Department of Energy, the largest contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions are fossil fuels at about 65%.

Sustainable food

Agriculture contributes about 16% of the overall global greenhouse gas emissions following energy as the second largest polluting industry.

Law and policy

Lawmakers and policy experts play an integral role in creating and ensuring a sustainable future. Environmental law encompasses a broad scope of the industry covering everything from water quality to hazardous waste to biodiversity.

New business opportunities

Venerable businesses and entrepreneurs alike should view sustainability as an opportunity.
