Natural capital

The term ‘natural capital’ refers to ‘…the elements of nature that produce value to people, such as the stock of forests, water, land, minerals and oceans. These provide benefits such as food, clean air, wildlife, energy, wood, recreation, and protection from natural hazards (Natural Capital Committee).’

Ref The SuDS Manual, CIRIA C753, 2015.
