2012.06.15. With the support of FORES, an environmental economics think-tank in Stockholm, EES -- along with Enveco Environmental Consultancy Ltd. -- has produced a report explaining the benefits of relying on economic markets to help improve the provision of ecosystem services, which are the benefits nature provides society (e.g., pollination of crops, supply of drinking water, recreational opportunities, carbon absorbtion, etc). The report provides concrete recommendations for what governments can do to support innovative approaches to environmental protection and enhancement. Through FORES’ extensive network , the report’s results are expected to have an impact on policy development in Sweden and elsewhere in Europe. Read more and download the document here.
