A notable shift is underway in the travel and tourism industry as companies are increasingly prioritising sustainable practices, energy efficiency, waste reduction, and conservation efforts in their hiring strategies. Against this backdrop, airline and airport companies are posting some senior/mid-level environmental, social, and governance (ESG)-related jobs for initiatives around business operations, reveals the Job Analytics Database of GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Some of the ESG-related job postings by major companies:

Air Canada’s “Manager, Sustainable Procurement” role looks at sustainable procurement as the integration of ESG criteria and CSR principles into traditional procurement processes and decisions to manage the implementation of the Sustainable Procurement Roadmap.

United Airlines Holdings Inc’s “Director – Environmental Sustainability” role will implement environmental sustainability strategies as part of its overall global dedication to zero out greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 without relying on voluntary carbon offsets.

Sherla Sriprada, Business Fundamentals Analyst at GlobalData, comments, “These roles not only reflect a commitment to environmental and social responsibility but also represent strategic investments in long-term sustainability. As the industry navigates the complexities of decarbonization and environmental stewardship, the expertise and leadership provided by these roles will be essential in driving meaningful change and fostering a more sustainable future for travel.”
