Why Work for Brightworks Sustainability?

Brightworks Sustainability is one of the most established independent sustainability consulting companies in the United States. Our clients are some of the leading organizations in their industries, if not the world.  Our origins are in the real estate industry and with the LEED rating system for green building, and our ideal candidate will be well versed in green building. At the same time, the field of sustainability evolves rapidly, and we are continually innovating to serve new client requests and to lead and support the market with new service offerings in our areas of expertise, including corporate sustainability services outside of real estate, such as supporting the selection of corporate reporting frameworks, and other services that do not relate specifically to buildings.

Brightworks’ culture is passionate and truly engaged in sustainability, and in the robust technical resources required to help our clients achieve advanced outcomes. We are a team-oriented, collaborative organization that believes that our best ideas combine the insights of many perspectives. Continual learning and development are central to our work, both for Consulting Team staff navigating an evolving landscape of client needs, and for our Corporate Team members to support the evolving needs of the business. Brightworks team members receive an annual budget for professional development expenses.

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our qualified candidate pool, and have a committee dedicated to Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity and Belonging (IDEB) that helps program staff meetings and informs operational decision-making, and we heartily encourage diverse applicants to apply.

Brightworks is a certified B Corporation, and has won numerous honors from the BCorp organization, including “Best for the Environment” and “Best for Workers”.
