MarkTercekProtecting nature isn’t just an investment in our children’s future, says Mark Tercek; it’s also the smartest commercial investment any business or government could make. Tercek, president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy, former managing director at Goldman Sachs (where he headed the firm’s Environmental Strategy Group and Center for Environmental Markets), and co-author of Nature’s Fortune, explores the concept of “natural capital”—nature as a quantifiable asset—and demonstrates how businesses, government, and environmental organizations can work together to drive bottom-line results and accelerate environmental progress at the same time. Presented as part of the Town Hall Civics series with University Book Store and The Nature Conservancy. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
