World Forum on Natural Capital

22.11.13 - 22.11.13

The World Forum on Natural Capital is an important opportunity for businesses and sustainability leaders to come together to discuss how the value of natural assets like clean air, clean water, forests and other natural assets is starting to be factored into business decision-making and countries’ systems of national accounting.

The programme will be inspiring and engaging and will encourage delegates to join in the conversation about natural capital through keynote sessions, themed workshops and networking events. The focus will be on practical application following the event.

The World Forum on Natural Capital will take place in Edinburgh and is organised by the Scottish Wildlife Trust in association with the United Nations Environment Programme; International Union for Conservation of Nature; World Business Council for Sustainable Development; TEEB for Business Coalition and The Wildlife Trusts.
