The ISSP-CSP Study Guide is the most comprehensive preparation tool for the ISSP Certified Sustainability Professional (ISSP-CSP) credential exam. Containing more advanced content than the ISSP-SA Study Guide, this publication illustrates - through real-life anecdotes, lessons learned, and case studies - the industry best-practices for applying sustainability concepts in the following competencies:
- Competency 2 – Stakeholder Engagement
- Competency 3 – Strategic Planning
- Competency 4 – Implement Sustainability Strategies
- Competency 5 – Evaluate and Report
- Competency 6 – Adjust plans
Because knowledge alone does not make a sustainability professional good at his or her job, an ISSP-CSP needs to understand sustainability in context. This Study Guide helps prepare candidates for the ISSP-CSP credential exam by asking them to think about how all the pieces of sustainability fit together, as well as how to tailor the tools in the sustainability practitioner’s toolbox to the tasks they encounter on the job.
This publication reflects the work of 30 Subject Matter Experts - including 19 ISSP-CSPs and 7 ISSP-SAs from 10 countries on 5 continents - practicing in the business, industrial, academic, nonprofit, and public sectors. Through an iterative multi-stakeholder process, this diverse team has produced a publication that reflects the vast body of knowledge found throughout ISSP’s membership.
