The Natural Capital Project pioneers science, technology, and partnerships that enable people and nature to thrive.
We work to integrate the value nature provides to society into all major decisions. Our ultimate objective is to improve the well-being of all people and nature by motivating greater and more targeted natural capital investments.
With our global hub at Stanford University, the Natural Capital Project is a collaboration among: the Stanford Center for Conservation Biology; the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, The Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre. We are an interdisciplinary team of academics, software engineers, and real-world professionals all working to make valuing natural capital easier and more accessible to everyone.
