Earth Security Initiative

The Earth’s resources and ecosystems are being depleted at an alarming speed, with consequences already visible for humans in many areas. We now know that in crossing ecological limits, we are affecting the planet’s capacity to sustain us. The economic productivity systems on which we depend face unprecedented risks.

The Earth Security Initiative identifies and supports practical opportunities to internalize these risks into decision-making in markets and policy, by building new collaborations around common interests.

The Earth Security Initiative reframes an agenda of ecological limits as a security agenda, in order to increase the understanding of political and industry leaders of the risks and costs of inaction, but also the necessity to act on the opportunities to steward the Earth’s resources from a perspective of risk management.
