The term “natural capital” is, in many ways, a branch of ecosystem services that relates specifically to business interests. Ecosystem services are the multitude of resources and processes that are provided by the natural environment around us, which we leverage for the benefit of humankind. “Natural capital” is a term coined by ecological economists to describe how these resources and processes are leveraged specifically by organisations for the provision of goods and services.
Our Natural Capital module combines powerful data sharing and querying capabilities with satellite imagery and analytical tools, allowing you to easily monitor your worldwide operations, review historic land changes or impacts, and assess potential risks and opportunities to your natural capital.
You can also generate full reports based on your results, so you can use it to account for your impacts on ecosystem services and biodiversity, and comply with forthcoming natural capital disclosure standards.
