Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services: Bloom or Bust?
Report/Policy papers
2008
Abstract: 

 Ecological balance is one of the key pillars of sustainable development. On the one hand, the business world affects ecosystems, but on the other it relies on their regulatory services (such as climate, flood control, waste treatment) and provisioning services (such as freshwater, food and fibre). These are services for which no price has historically been paid but, as we are now finding out, do come at a cost.
The report  not only sets out to enhance our appreciation of these issues but also translates this into an understanding of the emerging risks and opportunities as well as practical next steps for the finance sector. It is clear that the business world will not be able to function unless we can get these critical ecosystems and the services they provide back into balance.
