14 World Resources Institute Step 3: Trends analysis: Freshwater 1. Condition and trends 6 of 7 catchments over-allocated All catchments projected deficit by Direct drivers Over-consumption Climate change lowering rainfall and soil moisture Water-dependent invasive species spreading beyond plantation 4. Activities of others Major users –Irrigation: 62% –Urban: 27% Poor management on nearby farms (irrigation, crop-soil matching) 3. Company activities Eucalypt and pine increase water demands Wetland, riparian and grassland management increases water quality 5. Indirect drivers Entitlements increasingly unclear Population growth ~ 0.4% / yr Economic growth ~ 5.0% / yr

15 World Resources Institute 4. Identify business risks and opportunities 3. Analyze trends in priority services 2. Identify priority ecosystem services 1. Select the scope Steps in the Corporate Ecosystem Services Review

16 World Resources Institute Step 4. Risks and opportunities Priority ecosystem service Potential risks Potential opportunities Freshwater Biomass fuel Global climate regulation Recreation & ecotourism Livestock

17 World Resources Institute Step 4. Risks and opportunities Priority ecosystem service Potential risks Potential opportunities Freshwater Increased water scarcity due to: – Invasive species – Nearby farmers – Climate change Internal efficiency improvements (Co) financing improvements of nearby farmers Biomass fuel Use plantation residue in Mondi generator Sell plantation in biomass-to- energy markets Global climate regulation Emerging markets for carbon sequestration Recreation and ecotourism Ecotourism market potential Livestock Grazing reducing productivity Perceived under-utilization of Mondi land by nearby farmers

18 World Resources Institute 5. Develop strategies 4. Identify business risks and opportunities 3. Analyze trends in priority services 2. Identify priority ecosystem services 1. Select the scope Steps in the Corporate Ecosystem Services Review

19 World Resources Institute Step 5. Invasive Species and Water Scarcity in South Africa

20 World Resources Institute Step 5. Invasive Species: Biofuel potential After Clearing Before Clearing

21 World Resources Institute Step 5. Financing external water efficiencies

22 World Resources Institute Step 5. Ecotourism potential

23 World Resources Institute Step 5. Prioritizing opportunities OpportunityPossible ROI Other benefits Ease of imple- mentation Timing 1. Implement additional internal water efficiency improvements HMH Year 1 2. Use invasive species for biomass fuel HMH Year 2 3. Acquire additional water entitlements by (co) financing water efficiency improvements of upstream landowners MHL Year 2 4. Promote woodlots on marginal agricultural lands MHM Year 2 5. Promote coppiced woodlots for biomass fuel MHM Year 2 6. Partner with park to capture eco- tourism value LHM Year 2 7. Engage policymakers to improve fresh water resource use policies MHL Year 3 H High M Medium L Low
