    An ecosystem market is system where investors can track carbon pricing and other environment-related commodities. The market puts a value on ecosystem features, such as biodiversity, water quality and carbon sequestration Many non-profit environmental groups, including Defenders of Wildlife, support the idea of an ecosystem market, since it adds an incentive for developers to include conservation in their plans. Basically, a developer who needs to comply with environmental regulations (a buyer) can use the market to pay another party (the seller of ecosystem services) to take conservation measures that will help the developer meet environmental goals (such as planting more trees).
