EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Verdantix Critical Moments® is a globally scalable model that sizes, forecasts and describes the direction of sustainable business spending. This report, focused on the Indian market, provides energy, EH&S and sustainability leaders in market-facing and corporate roles with an independent analysis of spending in India across 29 sustainability initiatives. Built from publicly disclosed 2012–2013 revenue data from 263 corporates and Public Sector Undertakings with revenues of more than $1 billion, the model finds that sustainable business spend will grow from $1.7 billion in 2013 to $2.4 billion in 2018. Between 2013 and 2018, spend across energy, EH&S and sustainability management will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 6%. Firms will invest to comply with regulations such as the mandatory CSR clause in the Indian Companies Act 2013, and to counter the growing expenses of energy and water. Multinational corporations operating in India will respond to the global dialogue on sustainability, and build out more formal processes to manage sustainability. The analysis covers all sectors and sustainable business initiatives, from industrial energy management to sustainability R&D.
