Systematize Natural Capital

We all live in an information economy yet we lack enterprise quality systems to measure and manage the diverse set of resources that make up all the goods and services we rely on. The current lack of significant action to manage ecosystem resources by default assigns a value of zero to natural capital assets.

Integrated Sustainable Management is needed to move the needle on Climate Change. It requires a crucial link between a corporate P&L plus GPD and the natural capital assets that support every economy.

There is needed focus by governments NGO and universities on quantifying how we measure the process of valuing natural capital. Yet what is too often missed is the fact there is enough data today to make directionally accurate decision by leaders of business and governments. The outcome can be efficient decision making that benefits todays stakeholders and future generations.
