We are pleased to be running one of the pilot programmes for the Natural Capital Protocol which launched its consultation phase on 23rd November at the Natural Capital Forum in Edinburgh. Developed by The Natural Capital Coalition, the Protocol intends to stimulate more informed business decision making by offering a standardised framework for measuring and assessing natural capital assets and risks. Approximately 50 companies are taking part in the business piloting programme which is due to complete early next year. The Protocol is due to launch in July 2016.
Microsoft has been recognised for its innovative carbon fee model with a Momentum for Change award from the UNFCCC. Microsoft’s carbon fee is used to fund its carbon neutral program which includes working with Natural Capital Partners to support a portfolio of carbon finance projects around the world. The Momentum for Change award is given to some of the most innovative and replicable examples of climate action to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has launched its Climate Neutral Now campaign urging businesses and individuals to take action towards a climate neutral world by offsetting their emissions.
With 18 years’ experience in developing carbon offsetting programmes and CarbonNeutral® certification, we can support your participation in the programme - please contact us to find out more.
