Standing Profits - Forest Conservation

Another documentary from the BBC's "Nature Inc" series on business, finance, and the environment. The series looks at how business might be able to move beyond making money in a sustainable way, to making money in a way that actively preserves and promotes the environment. Specifically this documentary looks at the value of the world's tropical forests, with relevance to carbon markets and environmental incentive/offset markets.

"Perversely, under the Kyoto protocol, there is no reward for those who protect indigenous forests. On the Copenhagen agenda is a scheme to end that anomaly. If this scheme is adopted will it make a standing, native forest profitable? Recorded from BBC on 030709."
