The Guide offers a standardized framework to support businesses along the forest products value chain in identifying, measuring, and valuing their impacts and dependencies on natural capital. A clearer understanding of this complex relationship with nature will inform better decision-making, strategy and communication.
To ensure broad endorsement and uptake by the sector, the content of the Guide was developed through an extensive engagement process with key stakeholders from across all continents. Eight leading businesses have also applied the Guide to concrete cases of natural capital assessments, provided feedback on the content and shared their experience through case studies.
The Guide is designed to inspire other businesses along the forest products value chain to experiment with natural capital assessments, re-think their relationship with nature and trigger action and meaningful conversations from the forests to the boardrooms.
