The Heart of Borneo: Investing in Nature for a Green Economy report:
To make further progress in their transition to a green economy, the governments of Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia will need to devise fiscal policies and investment programmes favouring sustainable businesses that restore, sustain and enhance ecosystem services.
Businesses operating within the HoB can support the transition to the green economy by reducing their environmental impact, becoming transparent and sharing information among others.
The global community can play an important role by strengthening forest-related governance, creating mechanisms for forest management and raising financial resources.
Civil society is well positioned to support governments and business at local levels better understand the contribution of natural capital to economy and society and the nature economy-disconnect.
