Sustainability Excellence credentials

In 2016, the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) launched the ISSP Sustainability Associate (ISSP-SA) and ISSP Certified Sustainability Professional (ISSP-CSP) credentials.

The professional credentials were acquired by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) in November 2019 and were rebranded in December 2020 as the Sustainability Excellence Associate (SEA) and Sustainability Excellence Professional (SEP) credentials.

GBCI is the premier organization for independently recognizing excellence in green business industry performance and practice globally, through third party verification services for certification and credentialing. GBCI is responsible for administering and delivering the certificates, and ISSP now provides education to support exam preparation, credential maintenance, and professional development.
