Les 10 risques majeurs rencontrés par le secteur privé, en termes de leur impact potentiel. A la lumière d'un tel effondrement systémique il est possible, et dans le meilleur intérêt des entreprises, du gouvernement, de prendre en compte la valeur des services éco systémiques et la biodiversité dans les systèmes productifs.
