Our cover story this quarter looks at our reliance on nature and the ecosystem services that it provides, such as the provision of clean air, maintenance of the water cycle, climate regulation, pollination and nutrient-rich soils. Some sectors are almost completely dependent on these services, which are under threat as never before, with one million species at risk of extinction. We outline the value of biodiversity, the business case for its protection, and how we expect companies to respond.
