Valuing Nature adds value to Business
12 promising opportunities for UK businesses that protect and value nature’s services are identified in a report published by the LWEC-accredited Valuing Nature Network.
The report ‘Opportunities for UK business that value and/or protect nature’s services’ (summary and full report can be downloaded below) identifies different types of opportunities available to businesses, from financial and legal services to product markets and environmental technologies. It pinpoints 12 that could add significant value to the bottom line.
These opportunities arise from the National Ecosystem Assessment (NEA); the UK assessment of the state of the UK’s ecosystems, the services they provide, and the value of these services.
The report outlines the business case for valuing and protecting nature’s services and will support the work of Defra's Ecosystem Markets Task Force.
