Account for Nature says HRH

This year’s World Forum on Natural Capital, held in Edinburgh this week, focussed on the urgent need for all businesses worldwide to account for their environmental impacts as part of their normal business reporting.  Some great examples came from luxury brand manufacturer Kering, carpet manufacturer Desso, Jacobs from the construction industry, chemical manufacturer AKZONobel and investors, The Alliance Trust.  The conference got underway with a message from HRH Prince Charles urging business leaders to act now to save the world’s natural capital and pointing out that “the bank of Natural Capital on which we all depend is in the red”.  This was followed by an address from First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon who said restoring and protecting peatlands is one of the best investments in nature that Scotland can make.  Richard Branson also made a video-link appearance from Necker Island, for a roundtable session with young leaders on the best ways to manage Earth’s natural resources.  These big names were joined by an equally impressive line-up of speakers from around the world to address the most fundamental question facing the human population today – how do we stop using resources faster than natural systems can replenish them?  A major focus of this conference was encouraging businesses at every point in the supply chain to measure the natural resources they use in their production processes and work towards ensuring everything they use can be replaced.  For more see -    http://naturalcapitalforum.com/about/
