Detailed Description

This online platform strengthens the business case for investing in natural infrastructure, demonstrating cost-efficient solutions with compelling co-benefits for society and the environment. It also includes case studies from different industries leveraging various ecosystem services and tools to guide business decision-making, such as a cost-benefit analysis tool.

The platform has been developed in collaboration with CH2M, The Nature Conservancy, program Co-Chairs The Dow Chemical Company and Shell, as well as a group of more than 30 companies. This important work will contribute to the ultimate objective of the WBCSD’s natural infrastructure initiative: by 2020, companies systematically assess natural infrastructure options when investing in new sites or projects, thereby contributing to the protection, restoration and creation of new ecosystems.
