Measuring and Managing Environmental Exposure

Business Sector Analysis of Natural Capital Risk

Businesses are increasingly confronted with the consequences of natural capital depletion, be it through water shortage or new legislation around greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, while more companies are assessing their natural capital footprint as part of their growing awareness of their role in natural resource depletion, many are failing to explore the related risks and mitigation options available.

This report provides a critical appraisal of natural capital risk and of the levels of mitigation in 12 selected sectors. The research analyzes seven types of risk that businesses confront around the five natural capital factors of biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, nongreenhouse gas emissions, water and waste.

Most sectors are exposed to natural capital risks
For comparison and analysis, AGCS classified sectors as belonging to one of three categories:

Danger zone: sectors where risks are generally greater than mitigation
Middle zone: sectors where risks are roughly matched to mitigation
Safe haven: sectors that generally do not seem to face high risks and/or are reasonably well prepared
