The Natural Capital Protocol (hereafter the “Protocol”) is a framework designed to help generate trusted, credible, and actionable information that business managers need to inform decisions. The Protocol aims to support better decisions by including how we interact with nature, or more specifically natural capital, in decision making. Until now, natural capital has for the most part been excluded from decisions and, when included, has been largely inconsistent, open to interpretation, or limited by moral arguments. The Protocol responds by offering a standardized framework to identify, measure, and value impacts and dependencies on natural capital.
