Sustainability Consulting & Assurance: A $1 Billion Market With An Identity Crisis

This webinar shares data from the updated market size and forecast models for sustainability consulting and assurance. With a global market sized at just over $1 billion in 2016 and weak growth of 4% annually forecasted over the next five years, the sustainability services market is challenged by poorly defined corporate functional needs and lenient public policy drivers. Based on recent Verdantix research with sustainability decision-makers and practice heads at consulting firms, we will share our insights on why spend on sustainability consulting by heads of sustainability will decline over the next 5 years with no prospect for a significant pick up in spending. The data points to increasing spend on sustainability projects by other business functions but this poses its own challenges for partners tasked with selling “sustainability projects”.
