Accounting systems are to business what water is to fish—essential and irreplaceable. But failing to include environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data in these systems creates a blind spot around corporate risk and opportunity. That blind spot can now be addressed using the new Natural Capital Protocol. These guidelines help business decision-makers see environmental impacts and dependencies within accounting systems. Business leaders can use this information—which is based on structured, verified approaches—to assess the risks, costs, and benefits associated with their company’s reliance on nature’s services. Join us for an overview of leading work.
