World Forum on Natural Capital

Screen Shot 2013-11-23 at 6.59.51 AMThe World Forum on Natural Capital has been taking place in Edinburgh this week. The official website of the event is here.

BBC coverage of the event includes quotes from both Kering, the company that makes Gucci handbags, and the World Development Movement.  Not surprisingly they have different views on the concept of natural capital.  Kering is worried about the sustainability of the leather and precious metals used in its products, while WDM has labelled the idea as the Great Nature Sale.
