Research in accounting and business models for the management of ecosystems 

 

My research interests are at the crossroads of three crucial innovation fronts for renewing the collective governance of the planet’s ecosystems: (1) the design and use of new ecosystem and natural capital assessment tools by conservation scientists and practitioners; (2) the design and development of new ecological accounting frameworks and models at the level of ecosystems; (3) the contribution of the private sector to natural capital protection and maintenance.

To relate these three domains of innovation to one another, I have been mobilizing management science, and especially qualitative critical accounting research, as a pivot to connect ecosystem services information systems and tools, diverse forms of collective action for ecosystem governance, and private sector initiatives and accounting innovations.  

I have a strong preference for research-action  methods, in which results come from a combination between original theoretical constructions and practitioners’ inputs and needs. I have conducted research-action with business actors (Suez Waters), environmental NGOs (WWF), and public institutions. 

I pursue the development of a new accounting model centered on the collective management of ecosystems. I have also developed research on the design of new business models for biodiversity management activities by environmental sector firms. Other areas of research include experimenting ecosystem services mapping tools in concrete multi-stakeholders settings (e.g. Bordeaux) as well as the development of an original ecosystem management context diagnostic approach based on social science theories and useful for conservation actors engaged in complex situations in the field.
