Natural Capital Protocol

The Natural Capital Protocol is a standardised framework to identify, measure, and value impacts and dependencies on natural capital. It focuses on supporting and improving internal decision making by including how we interact with natural capital.

The Protocol helps companies generate natural capital information that can be integrated into existing business processes. While the Protocol is not a formal reporting framework, companies may choose to report their assessment findings and are encouraged to use it as a means to demonstrate risks, opportunity and value creation to stakeholders.

To bring value to businesses with all levels of experience relating to natural capital, the Protocol offers both a generally accepted and accessible process for conducting a natural capital assessment as well as a standardised framework to advance assessments and embed these into everyday decisions.
