The Scottish Forum are grateful to the University of Edinburgh Business School for their generous support and to all the speakers, delegates, staff and volunteers for making the event such a success.
In November 2015 the second World Forum on Natural Capital will be held in Edinburgh. As host of the World Forum, Scotland has a great opportunity to showcase its work, in this rapidly developing field, to a global audience.
“Natural Capital: Getting from A to B” on Wednesday 29th October 2014, organised by the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital and hosted by the University of Edinburgh Business School, gave more than 100 delegates from the private, public and voluntary sectors the chance to help shape Scotland’s contribution and find out how to make progress on natural capital in their organisation.
At the event delegates were given the first look at the results of the Scottish Natural Capital Survey 2014. The survey, carried out in partnership with IoD Scotland and ICAS, shows the awareness and attitudes of their Scottish members towards natural capital.
