The World Forum offers a unique opportunity to hear the latest developments, learn from real-life case studies and connect with leading players to help shape the emerging dialogue.
The World Forum on Natural Capital is an inspiring opportunity to be part of building momentum and purposeful action towards addressing major global challenges that are impacting the world around us.

The World Forum on Natural Capital has been successful in creating an awareness of the critical role natural capital plays for the economy, including for business and finance. We now need detailed analytics and methodology, through which natural capital becomes mainstreamed in the decision-making frameworks of business corporations, to support the Global Goals for 2030 agreed by 193 nations. The World Forum will bring together the frontrunners who are ready to take this challenge.

The world desperately needs a new economic system, one that incorporates the full cost of generating wealth and recognizes nature’s enormous contribution to global growth. The World Forum is an important opportunity for some of the world’s most forward-thinking economists, policy-makers and business leaders to share and explore how we can urgently build a robust, sustainable global economy that values nature and works for all.
Director General, IUCN
The terrible weather events of the last year have taught us that businesses can no longer ignore the role of natural capital in their strategy and business model. The World Forum on Natural Capital is a highly valuable event for anyone looking to make real changes to the way we think about and use natural capital.
CEO, International Integrated Report Council
I am really excited to be attending the 3rd World Forum on Natural Capital this month. Having experienced the ‘what is it’ during the 1st World Forum, and the ‘how to’ during the 2nd World Forum, this event will be focused on the experience of doing it and how it has helped to inform better decisions across industry and government. This evidence base will serve to help us all drive the agenda for the next 2 years.
Director of Sustainable Economics, JACOBS
I consider the World Forum as the event to be at the interaction between natural capital and business. If you aim to just learn about it or get inspiration from the latest innovations in the field, I highly recommend it thanks to the great quality of speakers and content.
Founder, Valuing Nature
The World Forum is a brilliant setting for sharing the experience of this NASA-TNC partnership using remotely sensed Earth observation data and watershed-scale models to analyze stream flow, runoff, green infrastructure and alternative perspectives on land use.

Successful businesses of the future will be measured by their true cost, true profits, true value. I’ll be attending the World Forum on Natural Capital this year to help move the private sector forward on that journey
