Capitals Coalition is now a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certified course provider

June 24, 2024 |

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) “is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to enhance their abilities […], personal skills and proficiency through a professional’s career.”1. By becoming a CPD providers, Capitals Coalition aims to address more effectively the skills and knowledge gap on the capitals approach, and how it fits with corporate sustainability goals, to transform practices for the better. 

This comprehensive 10-hour CPD course equips businesses with the knowledge and tools to integrate natural capital valuation seamlessly into their decision-making processes. Through clear and accessible language, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of the ACTD Framework – Assess, Commit, Transform, Disclose – the high-level business actions on nature. Practical exercises throughout the course empower the students to apply the framework directly to their specific business case, to really move beyond theory and gain the skills to actively preserve and create natural, human, societal, and economic value for long-term success.

Understanding the intricate dynamics of economic, social, and environmental impacts is no longer optional—it’s essential. Yet, a significant gap exists, with many businesses still in the early stages of grasping natural capital accounting and assessments. The course provides practical content for applying the Natural Capital Protocol framework. It delves into areas such as businesses’ impacts and dependencies on biodiversity, air quality, greenhouse gases, water, and land. It provides insights on how businesses can better manage those from operational, strategic, and financial perspectives. Finally, it aims to create awareness and equip participants to be an actor of change in their workplace.
