This overview presents Environmental Business International Inc.?s (EBI) definition of the climate change markets and industry and its nine business segments, in addition to a synopsis of the industry?s size, growth trajectory and market drivers. We also take the opportunity to compare the climate change industry to the environmental industry that preceded it. Environmental Business International initiated research into the climate change industry in 2007, more than 20 years after providing a widely adopted definition of the environmental industry. We believe that the evolution of the environmental industry, which EBI has tracked in detail since 1987, provides valuable precedents for and insights into the climate change industry and the challenges and opportunities it faces.
Climate change is now permanently on the political and policy agenda of world governments. It is now evident that multiple opportunities continue to emerge in the business of mitigating and managing climate change.
