In an attempt to increase prices, on February 19th 2013, the EU Environment Committee voted by 38 votes to 25 to withhold the release of 900m tonnes of carbon allowances, which were due for release in 2013-2015.

To answer it, we speak to global budget holders and build country-level models to forecast corporate investment trends. Our surveys and models point to a sobering conclusion: corporate sustainability spending in most countries, both developed and emerging, will grow in the mid-single digit range for the next three years. So what is happening to sustainability budgets? Right now, there is…
