Businesses are starting to take an interest in the natural capital agenda but much more work is needed to map their impacts and dependence on ecosystem services. Business greening organisations argue that such work has the potential to engage influential stakeholders in achieving sustainable outcomes (WBCSD, 2011; Cranston et al 2015). However, the economic valuation of ecosystem services/natural capital has also received criticism from sections of the academic community (e.g. Redford and Adams 2009; Gomez-Baggethun and Ruiz-Perez 2011) and the press (e.g. Monbiot 2014). Such criticism can be helpful in identifying potential pitfalls and areas that may require wider involvement and engagement of stakeholders, further thought and development of methods and policies.
