The Ecosystem Services Identification & Inventory Tool, or the ESII Tool, is an iPad app and web interface that lets people understand the benefits that nature provides and incorporate the value of nature into decision making. It was developed in collaboration by The Dow Chemical Company, The Nature Conservancy, and EcoMetrix Solutions Group, and can be downloaded for free and used by any organization looking to undertake a natural capital assessment following the Protocol framework. This document describes how the tool works, the modeling approach and structure, outputs from the tool, and a detailed case study describing application of the tool at a corporate facility.
