This report presents estimates pertaining to businesses involved in sales of environmental goods (including environment-related construction) and environmental services. These estimates are based on data collected via the Environment Industry Survey in combination with data from several other Statistics Canada surveys and data sources.

Canadian firms earned $18.5 billion from sales of environmental goods and environmental services in 2004. This represented an increase of almost 17 percent compared to 2002 when revenues totalled $15.8 billion. Environmental goods and services are used to measure, prevent, limit or correct environmental damage (both natural or by human activity) to water, air, soil as well as problems related to waste, noise and ecosystems. They also include clean or resourceefficient technologies that decrease material inputs, reduce energy consumption, recover valuable byproducts, reduce emissions and/or minimize waste disposal problems.
