Corporate sustainability is an approach to business strategy that includes consideration of ethical business practice in relation to environmental, social, cultural, and economic factors. Many companies have divisions focused on corporate sustainability and hire analysts, specialists, marketers, and project managers to create programs and campaigns for corporate responsibility. The three common tenets of corporate sustainability are profits, people, and planet.
Salaries vary widely depending on role, geographic location, and level of experience. Look at specific roles in the the Occupational Outlook Handbook, published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
