Stanford University Natural Capital Value Evaluation researcher won the award

Gretchen daily, a professor of Stanford University and the world's top expert in the field of natural capital value evaluation, was awarded the 2012 Volvo environment award. She firmly believes that the only way to create long-term human well-being is to quantify the value of ecosystems. Since the establishment of the award, three Nobel Prize winners have been selected among the winners

in the field of environmental value research, whether to price the environment has been controversial. Opponents say that the aesthetic value of nature, different ecological environments, and the resource value of various species cannot be measured by money, and cannot be quantified by price

"I understand these concerns," Gretchen Daily said, "However, without quantifying the ecological value, biomedical materials science and engineering are always related to their end use products (generally refers to medical implants) The problem caused by inseparable value is that we have asked for so many resources from the ecological environment, and the value of these resources continuously supplied to human society will be zero. I think our research should be more pragmatic, so that the natural environment on which human beings live can reflect its own value. For example, if we can prove from the perspective of economics that human beings can get great benefits from protecting the natural environment and preventing climate change and floods, then increasing investment in environmental protection will be more spontaneous and popular. This is exactly the way of environmental protection to adapt to the economic form in the new century. "

Ms. Gretchen daily, the winner of this Volvo environment award, is a professor of environmental science at Stanford University in California and a senior researcher at Woods School of environment at Stanford University. She has published more than 200 popular science articles and many highly praised scientific papers, and is one of the pioneers in the field of natural capital value quantification and evaluation. So as to better meet the changing market demand. In 2002, she published a monograph entitled "the new natural economy turns nature conservation into a business for profit" (co authored with Katherine Ellison). In 2006, she has moved from a regional economic model to a global economic and trade model. She has cooperated with others to create a natural capital project. With this platform, Stanford University, the World Wide Fund for nature and the Nature Conservancy have jointly developed a method to measure the economic value of ecosystem services. Professor Gretchen daily is not only an excellent theorist in her research field, but also invited to participate in relevant projects around the world as a consultant. In these projects, people should strive to ensure sustainable economic growth while protecting biological productivity
