Natural capital investing made simple

Natural capital is the world's stock of natural resources, including the Earth’s air, lands, waters and biodiversity. It is vital for the global economy accounting for over half of global GDP, according to the World Economic Forum.

Farmland and timberland investments represent an intrinsic investment in natural capital. Improving the efficiency of food and timber production while protecting existing habitats and restoring damaged ecosystems enhances natural capital and can deliver carbon emission savings. This makes it an attractive investment proposition for investors targeting both financial and environmental objectives, such as net zero carbon.

In partnership with Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, we’re pleased to launch the Made Simple Guide to Natural Capital Investing.
