WHAT IS NATURAL CAPITAL?
” Natural Capital can be defined as the world’s stocks of natural assets which include geology, soil, air, water and all living things. It is from this Natural Capital that humans derive a wide range of services, often called ecosystem services, which make human life possible. ‘Natural Capital’, simply put, is the economic value of nature.
