21 January, Germany – Conference: How Business Values Nature

The discussion around ecosystem valuation and natural capital accounting is gaining speed. More and more companies are expressing their interest in integrating nature’s value in their management processes but do not know how to get started and feel that natural capital accounting is too complex and difficult. To address these concerns numerous initiatives are working to overcome existing practical barriers and to improve and refine methodologies to assess and value ecosystem impacts and dependencies.

 

Methods and practical examples of corporate measurement and accounting of natural capital are the topics of our international conference “How Business Values Nature” on January 21, 2014, in Bonn.

 

The aim of the workshop is twofold:

 

To highlight the business case for ecosystem valuation and show why – despite the existing shortcomings – companies should now begin to measure and value their natural capital.
To bring together experts from different initiatives to discuss the progress made so far. Practical lessons learned from the application of different methods will form the basis to identify existing gaps and to discuss the way forward towards a harmonized framework for valuing nature.
