7 July, London – Breakfast Briefing – Linking natural capital accounting at national and corporate levels
Carl Obst, United Nations Consultant, Natural Capital Accounting, will provide his expert perspective of the UN System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) approach to natural capital accounting and examples of how this is being implemented in national accounting around the world. He will provide insights on the relevance and potential links to work at the corporate level to develop natural capital accounting. Why is it important to align national, corporate and finance sector accounting for natural capital accounting? What needs to be done to make this happen? This is particularly relevant for the Natural Capital Coalition as it begins to develop and pilot test the Natural Capital Protocol – a harmonized framework for valuing natural capital in business decision making.
This opening address will provide the background to a set of roundtable contributions from a range of organizations taking forward both conceptual thinking and practical application of corporate natural capital accounting.
