If you’re environmentally conscious and want to turn that into career, there are many things you can do across multiple industries.

You can work with a nonprofit or government agency that promotes environmental policies. Businesses are becoming more environmentally conscious; some businesses have separate green departments or use the services of other environmental consulting companies to promote this, which is another possibility. You can also work with a company that creates environmentally products.

Job titles for these industries vary widely, from advocate to consultant to engineer. A bachelor’s degree is required for most of these jobs.
