Natural Capital

Natural Capital JBA Consulting

Natural capital constitutes the various elements of the natural world, from soils to freshwater and ecosystems. Looking at the world through a natural capital lens, we see nature as an asset, much like any other, which delivers benefits to society, or ecosystem services.

The natural capital lens has rapidly become an eminent concept. This is because it not only helps us to identify our fundamental dependencies on the natural world, but also helps us to see nature as an opportunity, as opposed to an obstacle to development.

Our work helps our clients to understand the value of their natural assets and how they can work with nature to maximise opportunities and benefits obtained. Previous and current clients include international financial institutions such as the World Bank, national government departments including the Ministry for Housing and Communities and national agencies such as the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, and the committee on Climate Change. We’ve also worked with Non-Governmental Organisations such as the RSPB.
