The average earnings of an environmental professional have significantly increased by almost 10% over the past two years, outpacing the rest of the UK economy, announces a new report published today.
The much-anticipated results of the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment (IEMA)’s Environmental Practitioner’s Salary Survey show that as the role of an environmental professional is increasingly growing in importance and recognition. The overall increase of 9.8% shows that the environmental industry and the profession continue to grow in strength.
This is the full report illustrating the findings that profile how far the environmental profession has progressed since 2005 when a similar survey was carried out. Such an evident increase of 9.8% in this sector of employment denotes that the profession has a new profile as an essential part of modern industry, particularly now that CSR sits firmly on the mainstream business agenda.
