The Scottish Forum on Natural Capital has launched a call for case studies of the best examples of natural capital work from across Scotland to be part of a 'Scottish Showcase' at the second World Forum on Natural Capital in Edinburgh on 23-24 November 2015. Bringing together business leaders, government representatives and environmental experts from around the globe, the World Forum will examine the most up-to-date developments in this rapidly evolving field, with a focus on managing risk and driving innovation.
The forum presents Scotland, as host nation of the World Forum on Natural Capital, an opportunity to highlight the ground-breaking work taking place here. The Scottish Forum Steering Group is seeking outstanding case studies to create a Scottish Showcase at the World Forum that will engage, inspire and inform an audience of business leaders, finance leaders, environmental experts and governmental representatives when they come together in Edinburgh in November.
Submissions are sought from businesses, financial institutions, government agencies, NGOs and other organisations which have developed their understanding of natural capital to bring about a strategic change in decision-making. Case studies must have a clear focus on environmental benefits, supported by a strong business or economic case, and must involve lessons learned that are relevant to a wider audience.
To submit a case study, visit the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital online form.
