A systems-based approach to natural capital
A complete and accurate picture of sustainable AgriFood management emerges only when the value of human knowledge and social commitment are counted alongside investment in new means of production and environmental restoration. It’s what we refer to as multi-capital thinking.
The TEEB AgriFood Evaluation Framework brings together ESG reporting, operational management, and strategies for realising the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. This integrated approach ensures that environmental scientists, operational and logistical managers, corporate executives, public policy makers and regulators can all combine forces to harmonise and streamline overlapping efforts to achieve more sustainable social, economic and human outcomes.
“Now is the time to seize new tools to inform policy and practice, leading markets towards healthy, resilient, and equitable food systems.”
Ruth Richardson, Executive Director, Global Alliance for the Future of Food
