The Natural Capital Initiative’s 10th anniversary summit offers an independent platform for people in science, policy, NGOs, businesses and local communities to discuss and debate innovative natural capital solutions that enhance the environment and strengthen society. It builds on two influential summits in 2014 and 2009, which helped to shape natural capital thinking in the UK.
