Natural Capital and the path to Net Zero implementation 

Natural capital is the world's stock of natural resources, including soils, air, water and all living organisms. Natural capital is vital for the global economy accounting for 50% of global GDP.

Farmland and timberland investments represent an intrinsic investment in Natural Capital. Improving the efficiency of food and timber production, whilst protecting existing habitats and restoring damaged ecosystems enhances natural capital and can provide 10 Gt of carbon emission savings, contributing to 37% of CO2 emission reductions needed by 2030 to limit global temperature increase to 2°C.

We’re pleased to launch the PLSA’s Made Simple Guide to Natural Capital, and discuss the practicalities around portfolio fit, the role in the pathway to net zero and accessing opportunities.
