In the “green” space, credibility is crucial, and things are changing rapidly as investment   washes in and out of the sector, companies make big eco-commitments, or they slink away from their environmental goals. A great way to stay up to date is to sign yourself up for a few newsletters in the space you’re interested in moving into. Being well-read is also a networking tool — you can know who’s growing, who’s been bought out, who’s making  headlines. Use these developments as opportunities to reach out to the companies or people involved and start a meaningful dialogue.

    “In the “green” space, credibility is crucial,” you say. But isn’t that just another way of using size and good funding and politically connectedness the same way big business has manipulated the market in the past? How about regional media, specialized media, and all those who work hard to contribute their voice and experience to the green discussion? Don’t these “local” members of the media also deserve some sunlight?
