Corporate ecosystem valuation: a scoping study

This scoping study report reaches the conclusion that any attempt to advance corporate ecosystem valuation should focus on new ways of valuing ecosystem dependencies and impacts and incorporating these values within existing financial and business planning tools, drawing where relevant on the existing methods that have been developed specifically to value ecosystem services. Attempts should thus neither focus on trying to shift public policy ecosystem valuation initiatives towards a business perspective, nor on forcing businesses into public policy ecosystem valuation models.
