As the world progresses towards a greener economy, there has been a growing interest in how industry and government must account for and sustainably harness Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services. This refers to the world's natural resources and the beneficial functions they perform, such as a forest that sequesters carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

But with development pressure, demand for natural resources, and the threat of environmental degradation all on the rise, the question of how we can ensure that policy and investment benefits both the economy and environment is more important than ever.

Join us to hear from Professor Dieter Helm, Chairman of the Natural Capital Comittee and Professor of Economic Policy at the University of Oxford, as he discusses:

  • How the valuation of natural contributions and resources could work in practice and what the implications for industry could be
  • How 'Natural Capital Accounting' could enshrine environmentally responsible practices into business decision-making
  • The ways that investment in natural capital projects can ensure ROI for industry, government, society and the world's stock of natural assets
  • The government's ambitions in this space, including in the 25-year Environment Plan, and how Natural Capital could be used to empower green growth
  • Professor Dieter Helm CBE
