EBJ Vol XXVI No 07 & 08: Environmental Industry Overview 2013

Share

The U.S. environmental industry grew 4.7% in 2012, according to research and data compiled by Environmental Business International Inc., publisher of EBJ. EBJ's annual industry overview presents statistical summaries of the industry in multiple charts with revenues, growth, employment, number of companies, forecast and revenue breakdowns by client and type of project (see list of table below). This 48-page edition also features sections on three segments that don't have a complete EBJ edition devoted to them in 2013: haz waste, labs and recycling. The environmental industry's total of $343.3 billion in revenues represents 2.85% of the gross domestic product (GDP) and EBI estimates 2012 U.S. environmental industry employment at 1.73 million. Environmental industry growth has exceeded the GDP every year this century with the exception of 2010.
