Defining the Corporate Sustainability Professional.. This document produced by GACSO's Founding Members is the first publication from our initiative to establish a consensus on the role of the sustainable development professional.. Download.. You can.. follow us.. on.. GACSO explores the big questions about the CS career.. At a recent workshop we engaged with 50 sustainability professionals and got their views on some key topics.. C.. l.. ick the image to hear their views.. Supporting and promoting our members' careers.. Our members enjoy the following benefits:.. an organisation focused on making the sustainability professional role more successful and more effective.. membership of a respected organisation that works to increase the quality and quantity of opportunities and overall career security.. a safe space providing support and mentoring via GACSO's network of experienced peers..  ...   GACSO members together and enables them, together, to act as a credible source of thought leadership in the sustainability debate.. What’s sustainable development?.. The principle of sustainable development can be explained as:.. ‘.. being able to meet our needs today, while ensuring that.. what we leave behind.. for future generations is.. sustainable, for people and the planet.. ’.. The social and environmental challenges that this generates can be brigaded in any number of ways.. One would be to demarcate four categories: carbon, finite resource consumption, poverty and social exclusion, physical and emotional wellbeing.. In one way or another, every GACSO member is facing up to one of these four challenges.. Otherwise why would they join GACSO? The challenge of sustainable development and the need for a robust business response, is the route through which practitioners across the membership add value to their organisations.. Forget abstract, nebulous notions of ‘responsibility’ in business.. Our agenda is oriented around a concrete challenge – global sustainable develop.. ment – and our members are here to devise practical, commercially astute solutions in response.. GACSO’s role is to support them in every stage of their career, ‘codifying’ the best practice and encouraging questioning and learning that will help practitioners be more effective and respected in their profession.. GACSO members are also a distinctive breed of Corporate Sustainability practitioner:.. they recognise the scale and urgency of the challenge of sustainable development; they understand that this requires radical transformation, not incremental change;.. they possess the courage to ask awkward and disruptive questions in their businesses, never forgetting the commercial imperative.. and, crucially, they have the capability to lead their business through change and transition, always innovating, creating efficiency, communicating outputs and delivering value..

    Descriptive info: -+-.. Download our introduction:.. GACSO Introduction.. Purpose.. As senior sustainability professionals in the corporate sector, we live and breathe sustainable development but we do not have a professional body to represent our interests or to support our continuing professional development.. That is the role that GACSO aims to fill.. GACSO is different from other networks and organisations because it is about:.. individuals, not corporates.. careers, not the issues.. GACSO helps existing and aspiring sustainability professionals:.. make wiser choices in jobs.. to be more relevant in organisations.. to have more impact.. work with more excellence.. be part of a more respected profession.. Our Principles.. Creating value.. for  ...   our purpose.. Supporting.. creating a community that encourages mutual support and challenge.. Learning.. there are no guaranteed answers or sure-fire solutions to the complex arena we are engaged with so we need to always question and seek deeper understanding if we are to learn from our experience.. what happens in other cultures and business environments around the world can inform and guide our actions.. Sharing.. what we learn and the wisdom we accumulate to the wider sustainability community and those that follow in our wake.. Inclusion.. we do not judge or discriminate; individuals join us because of the resonance and relevance of our purpose with theirs..

  • Title: Global Association of Corporate Sustainability Officers - Codifying the Career
    Descriptive info: Codifying Corporate Sustainability Careers.. GACSO's primary focus is the 'codification' of the role and career development.. Creating a voice.. Sustainability is increasingly being seen by more and more organisations as the key challenge that can offer the greatest opportunity for creativity and developing new strategy that will lead to long-term, sustained success.. However, we are still in a largely bespoke phase when it comes to understanding organisational needs and defining the roles for sustainability professionals.. There is no consensus yet on the skills, talents and attributes that are needed and so personal development paths and career paths are unclear.. Existing roles vary considerable and are highly volatile with the scope often changing significantly.. Create a voice for sustainability professionals who believe that society‘s future and long-term business success depend on how businesses embrace sustainable development.. Enhance the effectiveness, influence and careers of corporate sustainability professionals by:.. providing members (and the wider profession) with a clear consensus description of the role and its impact on the wider business.. codifying the knowledge and skills required to work at the highest levels  ...   will support our members and the industry at large to make wiser choices in jobs, to be more relevant in organisations, to have more impact, work with more excellence and be part of a more respected profession.. Actions.. Our activities include:.. Sharing knowledge via White Papers and other documents.. Presenting at industry seminars.. Engaging with other professional bodies: HR, Legal, Training, Higher Education Institutes.. Knowledge sharing.. GACSO is committed to researching the many various aspects of the sustainability profession and disseminating our learnings.. We have identified a range of subject that we are addressing.. Our members' work and life experience is the first source we draw upon: collectively it represents hundreds of years of real-life experience of sustainability practitioners and is thus probably unique.. Currently we are working on:.. GACSO's.. "Defining the Corporate Sustainability Professional".. Career Paths.. The CSO Career Landscape.. Members' Stories.. State of the Profession.. In 2011 we published our first document: ".. Further work will incorporate contributions from other professionals including HR, Recruitment, Boards of Directors, that will add new dimensions and perspectives to this definition..
