CCBJ Vol XIII No 10-12: Climate Change Industry Overview 2020
The 2020s promises be the decade of the climate change industry as factors are aligned for scaling breakthroughs in key segments of the industry. The U.S. climate change industry represents 18% of the global climate change industry. One would expect that with 9 segments, 62 quantified sub-segments and a total of $446 billion in the US and $2.42 trillion worldwide, segment growth rates would not exhibit much volatility. But segment volatility has been in evidence for much of the 2010s, and more volatility may resurface in the 2020s as the next 10 years of the climate change industry is written. However, it seems certain that climate change industry growth will be at two times of more that of GDP growth for the foreseeable future.
CCBJ Vol XIII No 7-9: Natural Infrastructure
Climate Change Business Journal presents a conceptual model by the EBI research team that puts the value of natural infrastructure at $33 quadrillion. Based on a meta-study of natural resource data and environmental economics papers, mostly in the academic realm, CCBJ presents a global policy argument with not a flippant but a serious viewpoint of: ‘You might as well start somewhere’.
Volume XII, Numbers 7-8-9; Climate Change Consulting 2019
CCBJ estimates climate change industry consulting services at $4.6 billion of revenue in 2018 in the United States, and another $17 billion in climate change industry engineering, construction and contracting for a total of more than $20 billion. What was a disparate group of mostly niche services has now become a legitimate category of still somewhat disconnected, but increasingly harmonized suite of services.
