Introduction to Natural Capital and Biodiversity

11 mins 51 secs

Overview

Natural capital is the essence of all goods and services and it plays a pivotal role in all of our lives. Natural capital is broadly split into two categories: non-renewable assets and renewable natural assets. It is estimated that these two categories underpin much of the world economy, with $44 trillion highly or moderately dependant on nature and its resources. Traditionally, natural capital has not been taken into account on corporate balance sheets and was not factored into decisions that have caused significant damage to natural resources. This needs to change to preserve the Earth for future generations.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand what three activities are primarily contributing to a decline in natural capital

  • Understand different types of reporting and disclosure that are enabling organisations to identify their direct and indirect impacts on natural capital

  • Understand the different mechanisms that can be used to slow the loss of biodiversity

  • Comprehend the avenues to transition to a natural positive economy
