The National Centre for Sustainability (NCS) at Swinburne University of Technology conducted industry research from May to December 2009, with the intention of quantifying the impact of a carbon price on small-medium enterprises (SME) and mapping the responses of different industries to the challenges of operating in and adapting to a carbon constrained economy. Their approach to the research project focused on capturing the unique insight and experiences of the country's newest workforce---the Carbon Accountants.
