The Corporate Ecosystem Services Review: Guidelines for identifying business risks and opportunities arising from ecosystem change

This structured methodology helps managers proactively develop strategies to manage business risks and opportunities arising from their company’s dependence and impact on ecosystems. Version 2.0 of the English version includes some new decision support tools that have been introduced to help companies better understand and capitalize on the specific business value they receive from ecosystem services, such as the WBCSD’s Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation. The translations of the 2008 original version are still relevant, as the methodology itself has not been changed.
