Business Breakfast Briefing: a one-hour session on the Natural Capital Protocol
The natural capital approach - through which we measure, value and account for nature in political and economic decision-making - is gaining considerable traction in the private sector as businesses seek to minimise risk and maximise opportunities by better managing their impacts and dependencies on natural capital.
The Natural Capital Protocol - a framework designed to help generate trusted, credible, and actionable information for business managers to inform decisions - was launched in July 2016 at Chartered Accountants' Hall in London. It has been developed by the Natural Capital Coalition, a group of prominent international businesses including Shell, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Olam International, Arcadis, Cemex, Deloitte, PwC and Tata, and major organisations such the World Bank, International Finance Corporation, European Commission, the IUCN, Conservation International and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
Irish businesses are invited to attend a Business Breakfast Briefing to learn about this new initiative from the people who have developed and used it.
The Briefing is being hosted by Bank of Ireland on the morning of Tuesday 4th October. It is being organised as part of the Irish Forum on Natural Capital's 2016 conference, Making Nature Count. It will be led by Mark Gough, Executive Director of the Natural Capital Coalition, and feature presentations from organisations that have piloted the Natural Capital Protocol.
A limited number of places are available. To secure yours, contact us directly to purchase a Corporate Package. This includes an invitation to the Breakfast Briefing and a transferrable ticket to the conference itself, which can be passed on to another member of your organisation as required.
