Natural Capital Protocol

Natural Capital Protocol

The Natural Capital Protocol was launched in July 2016 by the Natural Capital Coalition. It is the first global standardized framework designed to help businesses measure, assess and value the impact (positive and negative) that their operations have on natural capital, as well as the dependencies they have from it. The Protocol was develop to generate trusted, credible, and actionable information that business managers need to make truly informed decisions. It brings together and builds on a number of approaches that already exist to help business measure and value natural capital, and, by harmonizing them, will allow all businesses everywhere to benefit from understanding their relationships with nature.
