Doing more for the economy with less from the planet: a resource efficiency approach to measuring and managing natural capital

Organised by Chapter Zero France and Chapter Zero Switzerland in collaboration with Economics of Mutuality Foundation.

Date: 24/03/2021

Three takeaways

  • Natural capital is more than just climate, and efficient management of natural capital requires an input approach (vs an output approach).
  • Instead of an output approach, where emissions are measured, an input approach should be used, where the 5 natural assets - air, water, renewable materials, non-renewable materials and top-soil erosion are measured to produce a good or service.
  • The natural inputs-based approach allows businesses to go beyond management of financial capital and embrace other forms of capital and go beyond mono-stakeholder engagement to multi-stakeholder engagement.
