Sustainability is a rising sector gaining increasing attention and interest. However, the general consensus is that there is a need for the market to build up ESG capacity to keep up with this movement. 

Some of the questions commonly asked by those who would like to pursue a career in sustainability and ESG include:

What is a typical path to becoming an ESG/sustainability professional? 

What skills and knowledge are needed? 

What does the job entail? 

What roles and functions are available?  

What are the differences between working for a consultancy firm and working for a corporation? 

What are the prospects, both locally or globally?

In this episode, seasoned sustainability professionals from Carrefour (家樂福), Cathay Financial Holdings (國泰金控) and Google will share their personal career journeys, words of advice, and insights on job prospects. During this one-hour panel discussion, the audience will have the opportunity to raise questions and receive first-hand information on the industry.
