Module 1: Introduction to natural capital

This module has been designed for businesses, organisations or colleagues in the early stages of their natural capital journey with an interest in learning more about what natural capital is, why it is important for business and how to start integrating it into business decision-making.

Participants will achieve a good understanding of the relationships between business and nature and related business risks and opportunities as well as familiarity with a few key practical approaches, practices and tools.
