The Corporate Workstream of the NCL is launching a pilot project to experiment with the Natural Capital Protocol and is seeking active involvement from Canadian financial sector companies. The NCL will help participating organizations to identify opportunities for integrating natural capital accounting into internal decision-making. This will be accomplished by applying the ‘framing’ and ‘scoping’ steps of the Natural Capital Protocol.

Participating organizations will commit to a series of dialogues and workshops to understand specific natural capital accounting challenges, opportunities, and questions.

Through the Corporate Workstream, the NCL will provide financial institutions with the guidance and support to:

  • Frame the natural capital context in which the business operates by identifying relevant impacts, dependencies, risks, and opportunities;
  • Consider impending business decisions where relevant, timely, and reliable information about the impacts of natural capital would provide useful insight and guidance; and,
  • Understand which natural capital impacts and/or dependencies are material and could influence sustainable value for the organization.
