EUEC survey: 60 percent believe carbon pricing will affect business in 2012

Enviance, Inc. has released a report from this week’s EUEC 2012 conference revealing that more than 60 percent of attendees believe carbon pricing will affect their businesses this year. The survey was completed by 237 North American energy and utility industry professionals.

The survey also found that 68 percent of respondents believe they do not have a system in place to track and report on carbon emissions. In 2011, 58 percent of respondents reported they had no such system in place.

Forty-eight percent of respondents said that water management is a concern for their organization, with approximately 40 percent responding that they don’t measure or report on water. Only 12 percent said that carbon is a higher priority than water management.

Last year in 2011, 84 percent of respondents commented that they monitor changing EPA regulations “as they happen.” This remained consistent in 2012, with 81 percent of respondents saying the same. Only 9 percent of respondents commented that they monitor changing EPA regulations “when we have to,” up slightly from 7 percent in 2011.
