Eco Commerce Development
Eco Commerce is a business, investment, and technology-development model that employs market-based solutions to balancing the world’s energy needs and environmental integrity. (Gieseke, Tim 2011 EcoCommerce 101: Adding an ecological dimension to the economy). Through the use of trading and finance, Eco Commerce allows for the further development of Clean Technologies.
Eco Innovation is the introduction of any new or significantly improved product, good or service, process, organizational change or marketing solution that reduces the use of natural resources, including materials, energy, water, and land, and decreases the release of harmful substances across the whole life-cycle.
Eco Commerce is an integrated ecological-economical model that provides a means to account for and value land management activities that improves the condition of natural capital and values the output of eco services. Eco Commerce is more comprehensive than a compilation or organization of ecosystems service markets as it provides the framework to build an ecological intelligence system that allows the public arena of commerce to define sustainability.
