Enabling a Natural Capital Approach (ENCA) - UK Government Guide

ENCA logoThe ENCA Guide was published in January 2020. It further establishes the natural capital approach, which defines as “…thinking of nature as an asset, or set of assets that benefit people” and states as consistent with HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance.
 
The guide is supported by evidence databooks of physical and monetary evidence, with guidance on how to use them in appraisal and natural capital accounting, and case studies. The guide also describes the application of natural capital accounting at different spatial scales: from national (in the UK natural capital accounts) to local and organisational levels, and supporting methods (like value transfer and economic valuation).
 
We are delighted to see many references to eftec’s work in ENCA.
