Why should businesses invest in nature?
Because it is one of the smartest investments they can make, according to Mark Tercek. The services that nature provides— clean water, air, and protection from storms, floods, and other disasters— can help businesses reduce costs, mitigate risks, and protect assets. Join The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and The Nature Conservancy CEO, Mark Tercek, for a discussion on how business, government, and society can thrive by investing in nature.
Mark Tercek is president and chief executive officer of The Nature Conservancy and author of the bestselling book Nature’s Fortune: How Business and Society Thrive by Investing in Nature. Prior to his current role, Tercek was a partner and managing director of Goldman Sachs, where he worked for 24 years. During his tenure, Tercek managed several of the firm’s key units, including Corporate Finance, Equity Capital Markets and Pine Street, the firm’s leadership development program. Tercek also developed the firm’s environmental strategy and led its Environmental Markets Group.
Mark Tercek’s book Nature’s Fortune: How Business and Society Thrive by Investing in Nature will be available for purchase and signing after the program.
