Nature, Natural Capital & Biodiversity

Last updated: 3rd October 2023

SLR supports businesses in understanding their interface with nature, developing strategies and actions to drive change and to meet the increasing requirement to report, disclose and demonstrate a positive engagement with nature.

Nature and the wide range of ecosystem services that it provides, are fundamental to our societies, economies, and human existence. Historically the value of nature has not been priced into our economies, and consequently, human activity has led to its significant decline globally. The current decline of nature poses a substantial risk to business operations and the global economy, with a significant amount of global GDP highly dependent upon nature.

Nature & Biodiversity loss is already impacting our economies and it is increasingly recognised that businesses need to understand their impacts and dependencies upon nature; together with understanding the risks that this presents and the potential opportunities arising from having a better understanding of their interface with nature and biodiversity. There is also an increasing need to engage with stakeholders and report and disclose this information through a range of market led frameworks, legal requirements and ESG reporting initiatives.
