The report “B@B Workstream 1: Natural Capital Accounting for Business: Guide to selecting an approach” is the outcome of the work conducted on the NCA Workstream of the B@B Platform between November 2013 and October 2014.

The Guide was developed in cooperation with different members of the B@B Platform. Its objective is to help companies understand what is meant by NCA for business and to help them select NCA approaches suitable for their specific circumstances.

The Guide is accompanied by a NCA Decision-matrix Tool which has been developed as part of this Workstream. This interactive tool links 11 NCA approaches to a series of questions about the companies’ interconnections with biodiversity and the environment. The objective is to enable the companies to identify which approach(es) fits their specific needs. Provisional ideas are also provided on potentially available guidelines and tools to help implement any such approaches. Guidance on how to use the NCA Decision-matrix Tool is provided in section 5 of the Guide.

The Guide and Decision-matrix Tool are subject to improvement. Therefore if you have suggestions based on your experience of using the Tool, do not hesitate to contact James Spurgeon or Jerome Kisielewicz.
