“It’s not that easy bein’ green,” Kermit sang in 1970, the year of the first Earth Day. The famous fuzzy frog could not have known that “green” would become the buzzword of the future. Now, with an ever-emerging green economy, the Project Management Professionals (PMPs) at Cheetah Learning are spotlighting the Project Management Certificate for Sustainability Projects.
According to Green Share (http://www.earthshare.org/2012/06/greenjobs.html), the green economy grew three times faster than the rest of the economy from 1998 and 2007. That trend remains, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, as sustainability continues to get the green light from within large corporations—a fact affirmed by a 2011 study by MIT that showed sustainability has become a core component of most corporate programs (http://sloanreview.mit.edu/reports/sustainability-strategy).
“The role of the Project Manager is becoming more intertwined with the skillsets of sustainability professionals as the reality of scarce resources sets in,” explains LaBrosse, CEO and Founder of Cheetah Learning. “Perhaps one of the best examples of our pioneering, eco-conscious roots is the more than 5,000 students per year who access Cheetah's naturally green, proprietary accelerated learning, online platform to upgrade their project management skills.”
The study “2009 Greening of Corporate America” reported that about 75 percent of American corporations indicated they were engaged in sustainability activities, double the percentage from a survey just three years earlier (http://www.greenbiz.com/news/2009/09/17/corporate-americas-adoption-green-practices-doubles-study-says).
Here’s what the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics had to say:
“These findings illustrate that sustainability is adopted increasingly as corporate practice. Concerns about corporate impact on the environment and local and global communities are being incorporated into strategic business decisions. Sustainability is becoming part of how companies do business in the United States, rather than being viewed as a cost.”
