CSR strategy and transformation consultants generally come from higher education institutions such as business schools, management schools, engineering schools, or universities offering specializations in sustainable development or corporate social responsibility.

These courses offer a solid grounding in project management, sustainable development and environmental policies, as well as a thorough understanding of CSR standards and regulatory frameworks.

Obtaining CSR certifications can also be a major asset for a consultant, as it officially validates his or her expertise, skills and understanding of CSR issues.
