Market instruments

Marked-oriented labelling, or certification, incorporate environmental services into commercially marketed goods and services. They can be initiated by governmental institutions (e.g. EU ecolabel), but are also strongly applied by the private sector. Also payments for ecosystem services aim at finding and encouraging opportunities to directly purchase environmental services provided by farmers, foresters or other land managers by the public sector, the private sector or the civil society.
