A first in accounting: Duchy of Cornwall includes natural capital accounting in their annual report!

June 2016

Earlier this year, the Duchy of Cornwall commissioned eftec to scope a corporate natural capital account for its rural estate. We followed the corporate natural capital accounting (CNCA) framework that we  developed for the Natural Capital Committee. This is the first application of the CNCA to be published as part of the annual accounts in the UK. 

Key results from the Duchy’s initial account are included in its Annual Report and Accounts - available here – which states that “natural capital accounting will help organise environmental priorities across different parts of the estate and will support decision-making around [the Duchy’s] strategic objectives”.

Natural Capital Protocol Training

June 2016

eftec and Sustain Value announce 2-day Training Course: Getting Value from the Natural Capital Protocol, London, 8th & 9th September 2016.  

This training is designed for business personnel looking to apply and commission natural capital assessments within their business.  

The Natural Capital Protocol (NCP) is a standardised framework for business to measure and value its direct and indirect impacts and dependencies on natural capital. The aim of the NCP is to enable business to assess and better manage their interactions with natural capital. We are teaming up with Sustain Value to offer the first training course on how to use the NCP. The training will be delivered by eftec Directors and James Spurgeon of Sustain Value who all are amongst the authors of the Protocol, and of the literature it builds on. The training will provide an overview of the Protocol, with an emphasis on its materiality assessment, measurement and valuation steps, informing the use of economic valuation methods and interpretation of economic value evidence.
