Have you developed a tool, methodology or resource that can help business measure, account for and/or value natural capital impacts and dependencies? If so, Transparent would like to hear from you!
Transparent (an EU LIFE funded project) is seeking to develop natural capital accounting principles and methods for businesses to use in mainstreaming the value of nature into their decision making. The use of holistic datasets and standardized methodologies will also facilitate businesses in aligning with broad societal ambitions such as the European Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Transparent consortium has already sought comments on the first draft of the Transparent Methodology. Feedback from the consultation period highlighted the need to strengthen advice on accessible, up to date and repeatable methodologies for measuring and accounting for natural capital.
Transparent is therefore calling for contributions of tools, methodologies and/or resources that are being used or could be used to measure, account for, and/or value natural capital within corporate natural capital assessments. These will be incorporated into the final Transparent Methodology and can be included in the Natural Capital Toolkit, if the organizations sharing methods approve. Gaps in methods have been noted in assessing impacts on the natural capital of the oceans and impacts on human health from changes in natural capital.
Please get in touch if you’re interested in contributing before 28th February 2022. Feel free to forward on to colleagues in your field who might also be able to contribute.
