Ultimately the failure of the economic system to incorporate environmental concerns reflects the failure of values. Reorienting our moral and ethical values will be a necessary condition for change in our behaviour towards the environment.”

Achim Steiner UNEP Executive Director. Quoted in  Global Environmental Governance in the 21st Century  by  Dr Maria Ivanova,  Director Global Environmental Governance Project.
