BSR has developed this report to assist businesspeople who are asking questions about ecosystem services. It is intended to help corporate decision-makers understand and assess the current state of play within the ecosystem services tool landscape.
The report offers a unique view of the full suite of current tools, highlights opportunities and challenges for their use in the private sector, and lays out ways forward for piloting, verifying, and validating ecosystem services tools.
This report was updated in 2014. Please see Making the Invisible Visible: Analytical Tools for Assessing Business Impacts and Dependencies upon Ecosystem Services.
