A provocative documentary that looks at efforts to monetize the natural world—and turn endangered species and threatened habitats into instruments of profit. It's a worldview that sees capital and markets as the planet’s salvation—assigning $ value to ecosystem services like=pollination, wetland water purification and oxygen generation. (90 min.)

Discussion FacilitatorJames Northey, Chair, US Technical Advisory Group for the ISO Technical Committee on Sustainable Finance
