Beyond Concepts: Natural Capital Tools for the UK Construction Industry

  • Calendar October 6th, 2016
  • Time 08:30


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.
