The Natural Capital Finance Alliance (NCFA) is an initiative that provides knowledge and tools to help the financial sector and others reduce and manage the risks of environmental impacts and dependencies. It proposes that environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) and natural capital-related risks be considered in the financial metrics used by the private sector.
The NCFA aims to clarify how companies expose financial institutions to material natural capital risks. It drives innovation and develops solutions to better understand the risks to pursue successful business opportunities.
The NCFA's purpose is to establish the foundation for sustainable long-term economic growth.
