Natural Capital Initiative Summit 2014

6th & 7th November 2014, London, UK

The Natural Capital Initiative hosted their second natural capital summit, ‘Valuing our Life Support Systems’, at the British Library on the 6th & 7th of November, 2014. The summit brought together some 250 influencers from across academia, policy, business, and civil society to assess the gains made so far,  and further actions needed to enable the valuing of natural capital in planning and decision-making.

The summit aimed to:

Derive a common understanding of what natural capital really means

Understand in plain language the natural and social science behind it

Find and demonstrate ways in which sectors and initiatives can work, and are working, together to apply it

Identify ways of ensuring that practical responses have scientific rigour

Communicate recommendations for ways forward across the sectors.
