This report provides sustainability leaders in market facing and corporate executive roles with an independent analysis of the size and growth of the Canadian 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 $719 million in 2011 to reach $1.1 billion in 2014. In 2011 the industries with the highest spend on energy and carbon efficiency will be telecommunications, banks, oil and gas, and retail. Compound annual growth rates in spend across the energy and carbon efficiency initiatives will range from 8% to 19% over the five year period assessed by the model.
