I helped to write the technical report that was used by the Ecosystems Markets Task Force in making their proposals to Ministers on how to combine the sustainable use of ecosystems with commercial aims. There is a some good material in here that should be of interest to quite a few people active in working out how business can contribute to environmentally sustainable outcomes.
I don’t believe I am alone in feeling that campaigners for a sustainable world have in recent years lost the impact they once enjoyed. There are a number of reasons for this. Economic crisis is one. So is the tendency for the media and the public to become fatigued with issues, especially ones that appear to have no quick fix. Plus much of the ongoing debate has been horribly confused by various ‘sceptics’.
