Teeb for business report 2010 movies
The manual highlights how a focus on ecosystem services and their valuation can create direct benefits for cities. The site has a simple appearance and it is easy to navigate.
In each focus area, FFF engages with other partners in projects with very specific goals, according to the needs and aims of the various stakeholders involved.
Examples include a sustainable city index aimed for British cities, that is now several years old, a toolkit to help companies in finding their business case for sustainability, taking into account the conflicting desires and goals of all relevant stakeholders, among others.
Several versions and sets of information are available in various formats in the download sections, making it possible to use it in different software programs, either general purpose or LCA specific, such as SimaProTM.
Recommend appropriate valuation methodologies for different contexts.
Many more information can be found at the site that is well designed and easy to navigate, though some pages are hard to read because of the small font used. It tries to transmit and present to the general public the core concepts studied by TEEB and its main results.
The study identifies five core sectors energy, tourism, agriculture, mining, and forestry applicable for TEEB.
The green economy report, published in February , used economic analysis and modelling approaches to provide an in-depth assessment of identified economic sectors where "greening" might lead to prosperity and job creation i. Examples include water and air quality regulation, nutrient cycling and decomposition, plant pollination and flood control, all of which are dependent on biodiversity. The report cites a study in south Thailand on the conversion of mangroves into shrimp farms. TEEB finds that investing in ecosystem-based measures such as financing Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation REDD can thus assist in combating climate change and can also be a key anti-poverty and adaptation measure. A search facility is available in each page to help users in finding the right information. This report shows how businesses can align their actions in relation to biodiversity and ecosystem services with other corporate responsibility initiatives, including community engagement and poverty reduction. This information will focus on improving our understanding of the economic costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation. Phase II[ edit ] TEEB Phase II, currently underway, takes an economic approach that is spatially specific and builds on knowledge of how ecosystems function and deliver services. A downsize is the scarcity of information on the methodologies used for data collection on the LCA, and an introduction to input—output analysis that might be helpful to people without that expertise.
