Enabling Business Decisions that Integrate Natural Capital
* White Paper: Enabling Business Decisions that Integrate Natural Capital: Learning from a Complex Systems Perspective. ICAEW on behalf of the Natural Capital Coalition.
"the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales have released a white paper draft, entitled Enabling Business Decisions that Integrate Natural Capital: Learning from a Complex Systems Perspective. The ICAEW led the development of the paper on behalf of the Natural Capital Coalition. This development was helped by contributions from individuals from numerous organisations who attended two policy workshops, in London and Rotterdam, run by the ICAEW and the Coalition, with help from the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and WWF-UK.
The introduction reads:
"The central focus of this paper is enabling better business decisions by taking natural capital into account. In exploring this we give specific attention to elements that promote up scaling the Natural Capital Protocol (the Protocol), an important tool for improving business decision-making that the Natural Capital Coalition (the Coalition) is currently developing and pilot testing."
The release of the white paper coincides with the Natural Capital Protocol Consultation launch. Today, we will officially open the Consultation at the World Forum on Natural Capital. Similarly, the Coalition and the ICAEW will lead a session at the World Forum that focused on the paper and the related policy environment."
