Biosphere economics challenges corporations with new action profile
Environment and finances – can they get along? Some decades ago, such an association would have been unlikely and those who eventually advocated for it would certainly be laughed at.

The challenges faced by the corporate world, the strategies and solutions used to incorporate biodiversity into ... market research, surveys and trends

200-Plus Companies Seeing the Value of Ecosystem Services
Agribusiness depends on the freshwater, soil quality, and erosion control that ecosystems offer. Insurance companies benefit from coastal protection provided by coral reefs and wetlands, while fishers rely on these habitats for commercial fish species. A decline in any of these services can substantially affect the bottom line. And, if a company plays a role in damaging an ecosystem service, it exposes itself to regulatory, reputational, or other forms of risk. Managers have only just begun integrating considerations of ecosystem services into corporate decision-making processes, but they are making progress with the Corporate ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Not just dolphins and puppies. posted August 14, 2008 Founder/Managing Partner of The Green Suits LLC; Managing Partner of Start It Up; President of Dan Smolen Direct Search see all my answers A plentiful but balanced eco-system where fauna and ...
