Mark Tercek: "Nature's Fortune"

Kojo chats with Mark Tercek, president and CEO of the Nature Conservancy, about the areas where he believes the interests of the environmental movement overlap with those of "Corporate America."

America's environmental debates are often cast as a tug-of-war between "green" activists and corporate interests. But Mark Tercek, a former investment banker who is president and CEO of the the Nature Conservancy, says these camps actually have overlapping interests and that it's smart business to invest in nature. We look at how capitalism and environmentalism can align on everything from climate change to the sustainability of our food supply.
