chief sustainability officer
 n.— «Now, the so-called C-Level Suite is swelling again—this time, with chief sustainability officers. These are not simply environmental watchdogs, there to keep operations safe and regulators at bay. The new environmental chiefs are helping companies profit from the push to go green. “Environmental vice presidents usually spend company money, but this new breed is helping companies make money.”» —“Companies Giving Green an Office” by Claudia H. Deutsch New York Times July 3, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
