“There has never been a better time for businesses to assess their impacts and dependencies on nature. Through understanding and considering the risks and opportunities created by nature, businesses can make better decisions that benefit themselves, society and the planet as a whole. However, when it comes to applying natural capital approaches, companies often don’t know where and how to get started. We Value Nature’s training modules aim to guide businesses in a practical and simple way to understand the relationships between business and nature and how to strategize and integrate this relationship into the decision-making processes.
The We Value Nature Campaign has developed two training modules on natural capital using the Natural Capital Protocol as a basis. The material is adapted to all business sectors and tailored to those in the early stages of their natural capital journey, with the aim of supporting them to take their next step:
MODULE 1: Introduction to natural capital Our first module provides an introduction to the concept of natural capital, why it’s important for businesses decision-making and risk management, as well as presents a few key approaches and tools to integrating natural capital in decision-making.
MODULE 2: A first natural capital assessment Developed in collaboration with Little Blue Research, our second module provides practical and concrete guidance on how a company can begin to approach a first natural capital assessment. The module will help you understand how to identify natural capital impacts & dependencies, how to scope an assessment, what are some practical considerations, steps & tips to take into account, as well as introducing different valuation approaches.
Our train-the-trainer sessions are open to all, whether you are a business, NGO, consultancy or other type of organization. They are meant to support change agents like you looking to bring on board colleagues, other internal departments, business members or an organization as a whole on the natural capital journey.
For our module 2 train-the-trainer, we recommend you either have an initial understanding of natural capital or have taken part in our module 1 train-the-trainer as some sections require a bit more technical knowledge.”
