This report provides sustainability leaders in market facing and corporate executive roles with an independent analysis of the size and growth of the Australian market for energy and carbon efficiency spend between 2009 and 2014. Verdantix selected this subject for detailed study as quantifying sustainable business spend is a challenge. One key reason for this is that sustainability budgets are often dispersed across many business functions and are embedded in business-as-usual activities. The analysis finds that sustainable business expenditure on energy and carbon efficiency will grow from $513 million in 2011 to reach $919 million in 2014. In 2011 the industry sectors with the highest spend on carbon and energy efficiency will be retail, telecommunications and banks. Compound annual growth rates in spend across the five energy and carbon efficiency initiatives will vary from 10% to 21% over the five-year period assessed by the model.
