How green is your prospective employer?

When researching potential future employers online, add the company name +sustainability into an online search engine to quickly see if they have specific actions and resources in this area.

Free AI large language models like ChatGPT are also a good way to ask about companies and their sustainability records. Information is collected from sources across the internet but be mindful some information is not always 100% accurate and you should read guides on using these for researching to ensure a balanced view.

Think of any company or brand you like and take a deep dive into their sustainability information. If you are working part-time during your studies reach out to your part-time employers to find out more about their sustainability policies too.

Evidence for an organisation’s commitment to sustainability could include:

  • Net Zero/carbon neutral targets and pledges
  • membership of professional societies like IEMA
  • company-wide sustainability working groups and sustainability champions in each department
  • internal sustainability awards, and/or engagement with external awards and competitions
  • incorporating sustainability into organisational values and mission statements
  • support for environmental or social impact charities
  • social media posts on sustainability within their organisation
