When was it released: November 23, 2015
By whom: Natural Capital Coalition
Today offers the opportunity to see for the first time the draft Natural Capital Protocol and Sector Guides as they are launched for consultation at the World Forum on Natural Capital. The draft Protocol and Sector Guides have been developed by the Natural Capital Coalition as a standardized framework for business to measure and value its impacts and dependencies on natural capital and to help them integrate this into their decision making.
The Natural Capital Coalition is built upon the belief that through collaboration we will go further.
The consultation is therefore an essential part of the development process. As well as engaging with the growing Coalition membership, which has doubled in the last six months and now stands at 168 organisations, the Coalition is establishing an expert review panel, to lead the consultation, build consensus and gain market momentum. The consultation compliments the existing business pilot program that is already underway and includes over 50 companies representing all geographies and many major sectors.
The consultation will run until the 26 February 2016 and will be followed by several months of further development prior to the launch of Version 1 in July 2016.
