CCBJ Vol VII No 10-12: Climate Change Industry Drivers 2014


While climate change continues to be discussed at the global, regional, national, state and local levels of government, distinct market drivers to propel growth in climate change industry segments remain fairly few and far between. Nevertheless a number of corporate and government initiatives keep technology and services providers busy as carbon emission and climate concerns are slowly woven into the fabric of corporate culture and social policy. This edition provides several examples of market dynamics driving work for climate change technology and service providers in absence of more comprehensive national or global policy.
