Private sector representatives from Chevron, Dow Chemical, Arnold & Porter, Shell, and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman will discuss their perspectives and insights as to how the development of a Federal policy on ecosystem services may affect private corporations and business. This session will provide a forum for the private sector to respond to the PCAST Report and the Public and International sessions that occur immediately before this session. Each panel member will make a brief (10 minutes) presentation regarding their views of ecosystem services from the “private sector” standpoint. This will be followed by an interactive discussion related to the call for Federal policy regarding ecosystem services.
