EPISODE 19: STEVE MCCORMICK AND ASSIGNING VALUE TO NATURE

EPISODE 19:

Steve McCormick and Assigning Value to Nature

Steve McCormick is a Venture Partner at Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, supporting a number of its portfolio organizations as a board member. He is the also co-founder of Earth Genome, whose focus is developing the first global information platform on ecosystem services and natural capital. The goal is to guide better decision-making on sustainability in the private and public sectors.

Steve served as President of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, President and CEO of The Nature Conservancy for 32 years, and on the boards of the California Academy of Sciences, Sustainable Conservation, U.C. Berkeley College of Natural Resources, and the California Wildlife Officers Foundation. Perhaps most impressive is that Steve has been on the forefront of treating nature as an asset vital to the health and well-being of every one of us. That is a topic that we have touched on in previous episodes of Voices of Nature but today we will explore it much more deeply.
