Operationalising Sustainability: Natural Capital
Tuesday, October 11, 2016 - 08:30
Tony is speaking at Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership Laboratory on Natural Capital.
We are already ‘drawing down’ natural capital by consuming 50 per cent more per year than the earth can replenish – and the rate of depletion is accelerating. In financial terms, we are no longer living off the dividends of natural capital, but off the capital itself. This creates significant unmanaged risks in supply chains that threaten the stability of business and future cash flows. By overstretching our natural resources to dangerous levels, businesses will soon have to face a stark choice: adapt or fail.
