In his pre-doctoral background, Sach earned an M.Sc. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management, taught jointly at Lund University, Sweden, Central European University, Hungary, Manchester University, U.K., and University of the Aegean, Greece. His education also includes a master's in Business Management, in turn preceded by a bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering. He has had professional experience working for two years as Policy Analyst with the Ministry of Environment and Forests, India followed by a brief stint with the WWF-India Secretariat, both in New Delhi. At Maastricht, he has taught core policy courses to diverse undergrad and graduate classes. In India, he has designed and delivered innovative courses at young Liberal Arts colleges across a range of subjects from Economic History to a nuacned epirical examination of Global Trade besides a course tailored for civil servants at Indian School of Business, Hyderabad.

As of 2020, he is on an extended sabbatical working on a book that analogizes components of nature and the economy. He insists it is neither ironic nor coincidental that his old bailiwick of environmental policy is the one field where the two global systems are most at odds.
