The Natural Capital Summit will bring together a wide range of environmental sector national and international actors and will address all the information that different initiatives are currently working on worldwide on this matter.
It is one of the most interesting events of the year on environmental innovation, in which benefits for the companies associated to an adequate natural capital management will be part of the discussion.
Moreover, the Natural Capital Summit will become a source of different strategies that can be developed to take advantage of the opportunities that biodiversity provides.
It is a must-attend event to find out how to benefit from natural capital as wealth source.
The main objective of the event is to bring together all society sectors around the Natural Capital concept, with a clear orientation towards the business sector (regardless of size, targeting both small and medium sized businesses and large corporations). The summit will dedicate special attention to those sectors that traditionally are not familiar with their link to Natural Capital and are therefore unaware of both their level of dependency of it and to the business opportunities around this novel trend of sustainable growth.
The NCS objectives are:
- Make known the Natural Capital concept as a basic element of the circular economy and a key to achieving sustainable growth.
- Presenting examples of international organisations that are conducting adequate practices of natural resources management towards sustainable growth.
- Divulge the National Protocol, an initiative that offers a normalized framework to measure and value the impact of the Natural Capital as well as helps to integrate it in the decision making towards the achievement of sustainable growth.
- Enable knowledge transfer and best practice sharing among organisations around the integration of the Natural Capital in their business strategy.
UNEP TEEB Coordinator, Dr. Salman Hussain, will be presenting TEEB for Agriculture and Food (TEEBAgriFood) on Wednesday 5th at 10 a.m. during the session titled: “Natural Capital, what are we talking about?” This session aims to provide information about the most representative international initiatives for sustainable development and natural capital.
