Sustainable Land Management Working group

The Scottish Forum's Sustainable Land Management Working Group brings together private and public sector organisations to implement internationally developed natural capital approaches with land managers here in Scotland. Last year, the Group supported the world's first trial of the Natural Capital Protocol on a land-based business with Crown Estate Scotland. Currently, the Group is working with Crown Estate Scotland, Nestlé, and other land-use companies to further trial the Protocol and explore new and innovative approaches to sustainable land management.
