Business decisions are often based on information that excludes the relationship between nature and people. Businesses struggle to understand and explain their impacts and dependencies on natural, social and human capital, integrate this into their management decisions, disclose this and making it difficult for investors and customers to appreciate these issues. And this is sometimes exacerbated by inadequate or insufficient regulatory/legislative environments and/or tax and market incentives. As a result, decision-making often fails to deliver sustainable prosperity.

In the light of the EU Green Deal and new EU Biodiversity Strategy, ACCA, Capitals Coalition, and Deloitte organised a session at the EU Green Week 2020 that discussed opportunities for improving decision-making by business by incorporating natural capital. Case studies from the fashion company Kering and ABN-Amro Bank presented business reporting and governance tools at each point of the circular business ecosystem, the existing gaps and possible remedies. The discussion also considered what more can be done.
