Realising Nature’s Value: The Final Report of the Ecosystem Markets Task Force

The Ecosystem Markets Task Force is a practical, business led review of the business opportunities that arise from valuing nature correctly. The work of the Task Force is a key commitment in the Government’s Natural Environment White Paper, ‘The Natural Choice.’ The White Paper’s ambition is to create “a green economy, in which economic growth and the health of our natural resources sustain each other, and markets, business and Government better reflect the value of nature.”

The recent Industrial Strategy: UK Sector Analysis from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills identified “increasing demand for environmental products, processes and standards” as one of the main four drivers for growth over the next decade.

The Government asked the Task Force to review the opportunities for UK business from expanding green goods, services, products, investment vehicles and markets which value and protect our natural environment.

The Task Force will deliver this report to three Secretaries of State — Environment, Food & Rural Affairs; Business, Innovation & Skills; and Energy & Climate Change — through the Green Economy Council, in March 2013.
