500    "An output of TEEB: The Economics of Ecosystems and 
       Biodiversity"  
504    Includes bibliographical references and index 
520    "This book is a further key output of TEEB (The Economics 
       of Ecosystems and Biodiversity). It provides important new
       evidence of growing corporate concern about biodiversity 
       loss and offers examples of how some leading companies are
       taking action to conserve biodiversity and to restore 
       ecosystems. It reviews indicators and drivers of 
       biodiversity loss and ecosystem decline, and shows how 
       these present both risks and opportunities to business. It
       examines the changing preferences of consumers for nature-
       friendly products and services, and offers examples of how
       companies are responding. The book also describes recent 
       initiatives to enable businesses to measure, value and 
       report their impacts and dependencies on biodiversity and 
       ecosystem services. A range of practical tools to manage 
       biodiversity risks in business is reviewed, with examples 
       of how some companies are using these tools to deliver 
       added business value. It is shown how companies can take 
       action to avoid, minimize and mitigate biodiversity and 
       ecosystem service risks, using compensation ('offsets') 
       where appropriate, based on the concept of Net Positive 
       Impact. As a result they can grasp new business 
       opportunities linked to biodiversity and ecosystem 
       services, such as increasing cost-efficiencies, new 
       products and new markets.The authors explore emerging 
       business models that seek to deliver biodiversity benefits
       and ecosystem services on a commercial basis, the enabling
       frameworks needed to stimulate investment and 
       entrepreneurship to realize such opportunities, and the 
       obstacles that must be overcome. Overall, the book 
       examines how businesses can align their actions in 
       relation to biodiversity and ecosystem services with wider
       corporate social responsibility initiatives, including 
       community engagement and poverty reduction"--|cProvided by
