Naturenomics™ 3.0 is made up of case studies, our real-time experiences in delivering Naturenomics , together with propositions for practical implementation, where case studies do not yet exist. In this way we are able to illustrate what it would mean for all sectors of industry TM to embrace Naturenomics and what they can achieve economically by putting it into practice.

Naturenomics™ 2.0 reflects the progress we have made and the developments undertaken with the Naturenomics™ model, proposing a stronger link between ecological competitiveness and economic sustainability. In it we promote our inherent belief that to ‘trust in ecology is to trust in future’
