Event Details

Natural capital is fast becoming a priority business issue. Yet there is a lack of understanding around the application of natural capital concepts to construction industry practices.

CIRIA and the Natural Capital Initiative (NCI) have come together to hold a briefing session on the application of the Natural Capital Protocol in the construction industry. This session will bring together construction industry leaders, leading natural capital scientists, and policy-makers to discuss how this and other tools can be applied to benefit the industry and our natural environment.

The briefing will have a distinctly practical focus, with discussions of how natural capital tools can be applied to construction industry operations on the ground.

 


Chaired by Professor Mike Acreman, Science Area Lead for Natural Capital at the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology
