Natural capital, an asset class that values nature

Nature underpins the economy. More than half of the world’s total gross domestic product, or $44 trillion, involves activities that are moderately or highly dependent on nature. Natural capital is an emerging asset class that values the natural world, an economic approach that makes it clear why a tree is worth more alive than dead.
