Client need

The Natural Capital Coalition required technical support to develop a finance sector supplement for the Natural Capital Protocol. The aim of this work was to harmonise existing natural capital work for the finance sector, including reports from the Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development (VBDO), the Natural Capital Finance Alliance (NCFA) and work undertaken by NCFA member-led working groups to better connect finance and natural capital.

The challenge

Identifying relevant parts of the Natural Capital Protocol to include in the supplement.

Drafting sections of the supplement to accommodate concerns and business processes of financial institutions.

The results

Natural Capital Protocol Financial Sector Supplement.
