Natural capital in a nutshell: what it is it, what’s it worth and what can I do with it?
The term ‘Natural capital’ is widely used in connection with farming’s role in environmental improvement, sustainability, biodiversity net gain, and climate change. But do we really understand what natural capital is, what it is worth and what you can do with it? Our speakers at this event will endeavour to demystify how you can measure it, what it is worth and, most importantly, how you can factor it into your business plans by making a more informed decision about how to make the most of ELMS and other opportunities.
Alison Holt, Director, Natural Capital Solutions Alison is a scientist with particular expertise in natural capital and biodiversity assessment. She is developing frameworks for applying the ecosystems services concept in agricultural systems, particularly in how it can inform decision making for land and water management. Alison will explain how to assess and value natural capital using a variety of modelling tools.
Sebastian Graff-Baker, Partner, Andersons Midlands Seb advises farmers and growers with crop, livestock and non-farming enterprises, particularly on costings and benchmarking systems, strategic business planning and helping businesses with the issues of succession. He will be discussing how natural capital and biodiversity net gain could provide a valuable income stream for farmers and how the National Register of land for biodiversity credits will work.
The session, hosted byJoel Woolf, will be held via Zoom at 3pm on 13th January and will last for around 90 minutes.
We really hoped to host this event in person, but given the latest COVID guidance, we've had to move it online. It still promises to be a very interesting and insightful event.
