A Natural Capital Protocol for the Ocean: London Workshop

October 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us on 16th October to directly inform future drafting. 

Building on the Natural Capital Protocol launched in July 2016, the Natural Capital Protocol for the Ocean will provide supplementary guidance that considers the unique value-chains of marine goods and services, and the special characteristics of the marine environment, allowing businesses to understand the consequences of ocean health on their operations, as well as how their activities can also have a consequence on the health of the ocean. For more information see here.

The day will: 

  • Recap and update on some of the fantastic marine natural capital work already going on
  • Discuss the challenges that remain

We’ll swap ideas on how to strengthen the business case for marine issues; how to get to grips with baselines, trans-boundary issues, and upstream drivers; how to integrate social capital and livelihoods; and how to get the best information from science and data. We’ll conclude with some key recommendations for the ‘Natural Capital Protocol for the Ocean’ and next steps for the project.

Read on and register here.
