    Purpose: help business integrate its relationship with nature more systematically into strategy and operations.

    The Protocol is intended to encourage those businesses that may have not yet fully realized the benefits of valuing

    natural capital to get started, and ultimately empower all businesses to help reduce environmental decline and

    start rebuilding the precious natural capital upon which we all depend.
