Roundtable workshop - the financial value of natural capital within supply...
Wed 22 March 2017, 12:30 – 14:30 GMT
Soil, water and habitats provide vital inputs into the production of food and drink, and yet they are rarely calculated into the cost of production. Projections indicate that the diminishing health of soil, water and habitats poses a risk to food production and therefore food and drinks companies are increasingly considering natural capital health a business constraint.
This roundtable discussion will involve key decision-makers, using case-study examples and shared experience, to explore the business case for investing in healthy ecosystems.
- The value of natural capital within supply chains
- What are the financial mechanisms that can or have been used to improve ecosystems health?
- How can we ensure market efficiency in developing such financing mechanism?
- What are the recommendations of this group?
