Purpose of paper: is paper aims at building a bridge among management studies, natural sciences and ecological economics. Concepts such as ecosystem services and biodiversity are introduced with the purpose to provide a new perspective to sustainability management. Methodology: e paper is theoretical. Constructs and tools developed in other disciplines are illustrated and discussed in order to provide a new knowledge platform to management studies. Results: e main results are: a) a theoretical framework to illustrate the relation of interdependence between the rm with the social-ecological systems; b) an exam of the most important economic tools developed to protect ecosystem services and biodiversity; c) analyze the main implications of the management of the rm.Limits of the study: is is a rst study aiming at opening new research avenues both theoretical and empirical. Qualitative (e.g. case studies) and quantitative research can stem from this contribution. Practical implications: e theoretical framework and the economic tools analyzed in this paper provide several hints and suggestions to develop a more environmentally sustainable management strategy. Novelty of the paper: e paper broadens managerial literature introducing new constructs and concepts from natural sciences. is new perspective helps to position the rm into the social-ecological system, favoring a more coherent interpretation of the relation of interdependence with the natural environment.
