Psychological and emotional wellbeing is an important part of securing and maintaining a green job. thinkPARALLAX are holding a free webinar on October 6 that might help with this issue: Avoiding ESG burnout through ‘personal sustainability’. Here’s the description:
For many working in corporate sustainability, the past months have been a seesaw of emotional highs and lows. On the one hand, environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have entered a golden age of interest from investors, customers, employees and even policymakers. On the other hand, the devastation of the climate crisis has never been more present or clear. No one can single-handedly solve the climate crisis — yet for corporate sustainability professionals every negative headline feels like a personal setback. When it comes to advancing ESG, progress is slow and, at times, imperceptible. Burnout is a real threat. If we are to elevate sustainability in the world, we also must discover it within ourselves.
In this virtual panel discussion, thinkPARALLAX will convene ESG and climate action leaders to discuss how we can foster personal sustainability to reduce burnout in the face of negative news.
