Embedding the natural capital approach in the built environment: from strategy to design, implementation and maintenance
6 October 2017
Arcadis House, London
Hosted by the Natural Capital Initiative in partnership with Arcadis
Building on last year’s successful event “Beyond Concepts”, this interactive workshop went beyond strategy to consider how the natural capital approach can be implemented within the built environment sector, and identify the practical steps needed to embed this approach on the ground.
