The Founding Partners met on 8th January 2014 to discuss the purpose of the Steering Group.

Priorities identified included:

  • Calculate the monetary value of Scotland’s natural capital and the cost of depleting it. This will involve coordinating experts including accountants, people from business, academics and policymakers. 
  • Communicate to a broad range of businesses and other stakeholders the risk of depleting Scotland’s natural capital and the huge economic value from protecting and enhancing it. 
  • Set up collaborative projects to deliver tangible action to protect and enhance Scotland’s natural capital. 
  • Peatland protection through working with the UK Peatland Alliance 

Take a look at the feedback from the group on motivation, challenges and areas of impact.
