The World Forum on Natural Capital Inaugural Conference Event

SSS events
21 - 22 November 2013
Edinburgh, Scotland

Event details

The World Forum on Natural Capital is an important opportunity for businesses and sustainability leaders to come together to discuss how the value of natural assets like clean air, clean water, forests and other natural assets is starting to be factored into business decision-making and countries’ systems of national accounting.

The inaugural World Forum on Natural Capital will be the first major global conference devoted exclusively to turning the debate on natural capital accounting into action. It will build on the enormous private sector interest shown at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio in June 2012 and the many developments that have taken place since.


The programme will be inspiring and engaging and will encourage delegates to join in the conversation about natural capital through keynote sessions, themed workshops and networking events. The focus will be on practical application following the event.

You can view the outline programme below. Please note that session titles are indicative and may change. Details will be added as the programme develops.
