What is a Fractional CSO?

A Fractional Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) is a dedicated resource for your organization who can provide strategic guidance, lead organizational change, and address data systems design & optimization. Your CSO will act as an experienced in-house CSO but works on a part-time or project basis as determined by your company. The goal is to help your company scale fast without the commitment of bringing on a full-time employee.

Why hire a Fractional CSO?

The main reasons a company chooses to hire a fractional CSO over an in-house CSO are: to maximize experience; to ramp up quickly; for a temporary situation; or because they require deep expertise and immediate response to tackle a pressing sustainability project.
