The Natural Capital Leaders Index
The Natural Capital Leaders Index has been designed to recognize companies demonstrating natural capital leadership – and in addition, break new ground by identifying those that are truly ‘moving the needle’ by decoupling growth from natural capital impact.
Natural capital impacts, such as pollution and unsustainable demand for natural resources, are compromising nature’s ability to deliver economic growth and the problem is expected to intensify with our rapidly expanding population. Natural capital, an extension of the economic notion of capital to goods and services provided by the natural environment, provides much needed business context to help companies understand and optimize their performance.
