Capitalactiv is a management consultancy specialising in sustainability. We help you get a handle on carbon and natural capital. Within your operations and investments, and across your products and services.
Natural capital refers to the elements of nature that directly and indirectly produce value or benefits to people, including ecosystems, species, water, land, and minerals. The everyday resources they provide include energy, food, timber, fisheries and freshwater, as well as services such as air and water filtration, flood protection and plant pollination.
Our approach is to identify and analyse the natural capital that is material and relevant to a business unit or operation; and to integrate the management and reporting of this with other business metrics. The support we provide includes :
Do you own or lease land and natural resources?
Are you responsible for significant resource use and/or emissions to air and water?
Do your products/services provide food, fuel or fibre?
How far does the health of natural capital impact on yields and production costs?
We are members of the Natural Capital Coalition www.naturalcapitalcoalition.org and utilise the Natural Capital Protocol.
If decision making contains no quantification of externalities such as natural and social capital, companies are exposed to increased risk and potentially making less optimal decisions in terms of long-term growth, productivity and innovation.
Social capital refers to the collective value of all “social networks” (who people know) and the inclinations that arise from these networks to do things for one other (norms of reciprocity). External social capital derives from the social network structures, relationships, and connections between an organisation and its customers, suppliers, partners, investors and NGOs.
