Pricing the Priceless: The business case for action on biodiversity
7th December 2011
Peter Young, Chairman of the Aldersgate Group (AG) welcomed attendees to the launch of the AG’s new report on business and biodiversity.
Previous work by the AG has dealt with the importance of wider resource efficiency, “beyond carbon”, and the business case for action on biodiversity progresses this theme.
Developments in the understanding of biodiversity issues have been rapid, with Defra’s publication of the Natural Environment White Paper which includes a commitment to publishing natural capital accounts and establishment of the Ecosystem Markets Task Force by Defra, which he would be a member of, representing the AG.
