Ready to explore how natural capital can transform your sustainability strategy and boost project success?

Join us for Episode 12 of Sustainability Superheroes as Host Stephen Marland welcomes Jonathan Nichols from Atkins Realis. They’ll delve into the evolving landscape of natural capital, a critical component many consider the next stage in environmental assessment alongside—environmental net gain (ENG), which extends beyond biodiversity net gain (BNG).

Here’s what you will learn:

  • The core concepts of natural capital: Understand the types of ecosystem services and the global frameworks that guide natural capital assessments.
  • How to enhance and fast-track your project decision-making: Explore how natural capital can support nature-based service markets and improve environmental reporting in corporate sectors.
  • The best metrics for quantifying natural capital: Learn how to calculate economic valuations and apply frameworks following the UK Governments guidance (ENCA) and recommended tools like NCRAT.
  • How to maximize the synergy between natural capital and biodiversity net gain: Discover how they collectively enhance project planning and corporate environmental strategies.

Prepare to transform your approach to environmental assessment and gain insights into leveraging natural capital for more sustainable and financially sound project outcomes. This session will inform and equip you with practical tools and knowledge to integrate natural capital considerations into your projects and corporate strategies.
