As we noted earlier this year, The Natural Capital Committee is an independent advisory body set up to advise the government on sustainable use of England's forests, rivers, atmosphere, land, wildlife, oceans, and other natural resources. Colin Mayer from Oxford University's Said Business School, who is leading our mutuality partnership there, is a committee member.
The NCC has released it's third annual report on the State of Natural Capital, which you can read in its entirety here. This year the report "recommends that the Government, working closely with the private sector and NGOs, should develop a comprehensive strategy to protect and improve natural capital. The report presents a series of potential environmental investments that offer good economic returns as well as a new framework for organisations to take account of natural capital."
