Natural Capital Investment

‘Natural capital’ is gaining traction as a way of making the value of nature visible to decision-makers in business, government and modern financial systems. However, currently Australia doesn’t have a comprehensive and consistent set of metrics to support widespread adoption of natural capital measurement.

The Natural Capital Investment Initiative in Climateworks Centre is working to fill this gap, including through the proof-of-concept Natural Capital Measurement Catalogue and options for encouraging natural capital measurement at the property level. The Initiative next aims to build the business case for land users to measure and improve their natural capital, and to support organisations’ ability to report nature-related impacts and dependencies.
