    Background[edit | edit source]

    Industrial expansion often comes at the cost of ecological stability. The business practice of Environmental Economics addresses this problem by finding and exploiting areas where environmental and industrial concerns overlap, such as sustainable resource use, eco-tourism, and organic product development. By combining the principles of Industrial Economics (B2) and Ecological Engineering (E4) in this new business model, ecological stability becomes a profitable endeavor.
