The International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) has opened the registration for its entry-level ISSP Sustainability Associate credential exam.

About ISSP Sustainability Associate Certification

The Sustainability Associate (ISSP-SA) credential is the first of two levels of ISSP Certification, designed for individuals who are relatively new to the field of sustainability but have sufficient education and training to pass a test on core knowledge and understanding of key sustainability concepts.

A Globally Recognized and Accredited Sustainability Certification

Since beta testing of the ISSP certification program began last summer, more than 240 people worldwide have earned one of the two ISSP designations. Through their participation in the beta certification program, these pioneers have helped to validate the exam and test the processes used to apply for, score, and award the ISSP Sustainability Professional credentials.

ISSP has followed the internationally recognized ISO 17024 standard in development of the Sustainability Professional Certification program. ISO 17024 sets out globally recognized criteria for creating a certification program for individuals. Adhering to the ISO 17024 standard ensures that the ISSP Certification provides a global benchmark for sustainability professionals and industry-recognized credentials that can be carried across national borders.
