Corporate Climate Strategists
The proliferation of new and more stringent environmental regulations is causing more companies to seek help from corporate climate strategists, so the employment outlook is bright. More job opportunities are also expected to develop as a result of the Obama administration's Recovery and Reinvestment Act (2009), which includes more than $60 billion in clean-energy investments, and aims to invest over $150 billion over the next decade to clean-energy research and development. With the administration's plan to protect American consumers by "closing the carbon loophole" and "cracking down on polluters," corporations will be rethinking their business operations and consulting with strategists for advice on environmental compliance and corporate social responsibility.
