Natural Capital Commitment

Natural Capital Commitment

Businesses around the world are applying natural capital thinking to help them inform better decisions.

The Natural Capital Coalition is a founding partner of Business for Nature, a coalition of leading global organizations who have come together to convene a united business voice to advocate on behalf of nature.

In the build up to the crucial fifteenth meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP) of the Convention on Biological Diversity that will take place in China in 2020, we are asking businesses to commit to apply natural capital thinking, to act upon the results to improve their decision making, and to conserve and enhance the natural capital upon which we all depend.

Those businesses that sign this commitment, and act upon it, will be recognized as leaders in natural capital application, and as making a contribution to Business for Nature. Best practice will be published and promoted as inspiration for other businesses and governments.

The Coalition team will work with signatories to understand the combined impact that this commitment and associated action has achieved, and what more they can do to understand and enhance their relationship with nature.

By signing this commitment you agree to share the results of your assessment with the Natural Capital Coalition.

If you have any questions, would like support with your application or would like to join the Coalition please contact
