In this final episode, we look at the new breed of investors who are making substantial and sustainable profits by going long and investing in keeping ecosystems healthy. We uncover the ultra-slick carbon trading market (which is predicted to be worth $300 billion a year before the end of the decade), the multi-million-dollar trade in endangered wetlands, and how investment banks are buying entire islands and rainforests to make huge future profits.
