The Natural Capital Declaration (NCD), is a commitment by CEOs from the finance sector to work towards integrating natural capital criteria into their products and services. It is convened and facilitated on their behalf by a secretariat comprising the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), the Global Canopy Programme (GCP), and the Center for Sustainability Studies (GVces) of the Business Administration School of the Getulio Vargas Foundation. The NCD was born out of the insight that financial institutions could benefit from greater guidance to embed specific aspects of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in their risk management, due diligence, loans, investments, and insurance activities.
