Third quarter 2009 global Engineering & Construction industry M&A analysis

Climate change: Shifting the business environment beyond corporate responsibility

This quarter, the Engineering growth report takes a deeper look at the impact prospective energy and climate policies may have on business transactions. Our special report highlights the role of cap-and-trade on climate change legislation, the deal market's response, company brand and reputation considerations, and the interests of the growing number of environmentally aware stakeholders.

PricewaterhouseCoopers' third-quarter engineering and construction mergers and acquisition analysis indicates that the challenging global macroeconomic environment continues to limit the pace of deal activity, yet the third quarter of 2009 showed signs that the market may be setting up for recovery.
