The Environment & The Economy

Can we create stable and productive economies without hurting the planet?
We and our economies are completely reliant on the environment. Without the resources it provides, and the indirect services it provides through its ecosystems — purifying water, managing flood risks, recycling nutrients — we couldn’t survive. But it’s not just ours. Not only do other living beings rely on it, but future generations will too — so when we’re thinking about how our economies should work, we have a responsibility to keep them in mind.
