Ecological economics is a solution-based field of study – focusing on sustainability and development rather than capital growth.
As the environmental crisis is on the edge, there is a growing urgency to create a sustainable ecosystem and society – which has also elevated the significance of ecological economics.
It ensures that nearly 80% of the total economic activity is associated with optimum resource use and waste management, central to finding more sustainable solutions.
This one covers topics like:
– The Core Concepts
– Why did ecological economics come into existence?
– What are the solutions for a sustainable and just future?
– How ecological economics interacts with businesses
While there are optimistic indicators of goals for “genuine sustainability,” that is, building enterprises that benefit both society and natural systems, the fact is that the “great divide” is widening rather than closing.
To re-connect economic sanity with global health and resilience, company growth must be re-evaluated and re-conceptualized as a developmental activity mainly concerned with social-ecological flourishing.
