The Best Environmental Sustainability Jobs Boards and Sites

by Shannon Houde

With 8.1 million job openings and 9.8 million unemployed Americans looking for work, according to Kenan Institute, a partner of University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School, there is a lot of career movement in the workplace.

Sustainability is an especially hot hiring space right now, and likely will remain so for the foreseeable future, as issues such as climate change, biodiversity and environmental justice continue to be top of mind for policymakers, corporations, nonprofit advocacy groups, and many other stakeholders. In fact, as I wrote earlier this month, growth in Chief Sustainability Officers reached a record high in 2020.

Diversity for Social Impact offers one of the most extensive lists of environmental sustainability job boards and sites I’ve ever seen. The geographic scope is global and categories of jobs include, but are not limited to, environmental policy, sustainable development and engineering, agriculture and forestry, biodiversity, and environmental health.
