Zachary Shahan, a writer for the blog Eco Wordly, recently posted an article about the new report, "The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity". In his report, Shahan reiterates that conserving our environment is not only important to our future but also our economic success as well, “As the report says: ‘The failure of markets to adequately consider the value of ecosystem services is of concern not only to environment, development and climate change ministries but also to finance, economics and business ministries.’” I found his article very interesting!
