Corporate Natural Capital Accounting (CNCA)
The dependence and impact that businesses have on water, land, biodiversity, oceans, and climate is best measured through corporate natural capital accounting. CNCA classifies data so that it can be better compared and integrated into decisions making across business units, supply chains and used in forecasting. Most companies already employ some of these approaches, but recent advances in methods provide new opportunities.
Sustainable Flows helps managers address immediate priorities in an way that supports full integration of environmental aspects with financials over time.
