The degradation of the world’s ecosystems and the services they provide is creating a range of risks and opportunities for companies. The
private sector contributes to ecosystem change, while also depending on
the goods and services ecosystems provide. WRI works to align ecosystem stewardship with the attainment of business goals. Our solutions:
