Ecosystem services and biodiversity
Ecosystem services are functions provided by nature which we rarely think about. They regulate the temperature in our cities, meet our needs for timber, fruit and clean water, and contribute to health. We all depend on ecosystem services, regardless of whether we live in cities or in rural areas, and whether we are aware of them or not.
U&We helps companies and organizations to identify and develop strategies to work with ecosystem services.
As an example, Saltå Kvarn wanted to make it easy for suppliers to support ecosystem services. U&We developed a toolbox of measures, to promote biodiversity, reduce climate impact and combat eutrophication, which has been used by Saltå Kvarn to create an incentive system for their suppliers.
