Native Energy
• Look at social responsibility positions in large companies. Many companies are concerned about our energy future and their public image. Corporate responsibility positions will continue to be an area of continued job growth.
• Ceres (ceres.org) is a good place to look for companies interested in sustainability. BSR (The Business of a Better World) is an extensive network of sustainable companies and a good resource for job seekers.
• Check out schools with green and sustainability programs. The University of Vermont, Middlebury College, and St. Michael's College have excellent environmental programs.
Native Energy is a developer and seller of carbon credits. Carbon credits allow for the funding of renewable energy projects and reduce the amount of energy required from fossil fuels. When a company buys carbon offsets they are funding a project such as a wind farm or a methane digester and thus offsetting the effect of their own pollution. In the last 10 years, Native Energy clients have helped build a remarkable 48 projects including wind, biogas, and solar.
KAREN DUDLEY
Managing Director Of Philanthropy
The Nature Conservancy
• Some aspects of environmental philanthropy management are similar to marketing and sales jobs. Marketing and public speaking might be useful areas of study.
• The University of Miami has a well regarded philanthropy program in the the Division of Continuing Studies.
• Corporate responsibility departments might be a good place to look for growth and opportunity in the coming years.
Miami and the entire South Florida area have a multitude of amazing natural resources, such as Lake Okeechobee, the Everglades, coral reefs, and marine wildlife that need the help and resources of dedicated environmental professionals such as Karen Dudley. Fund raising is the life blood of environmental non-profits, and Karen pointed out that it requires more of a sales and marketing background than other green jobs.

One of the more innovative approaches to environmental fund raising in the Miami area is the Leave a Legacy program. Individuals are encouraged to leave part of their estate to environmental charities. Corporate responsibility programs have grown in popularity in recent years, allowing for job openings for corporate responsibility officers. In addition, South Florida Power and Light has been a leader in innovative energy programs.
