Natural Capital Ireland (NCI) is a group of organisations and individuals from academia and public, private and NGO sectors interested in the development and application of the natural capital agenda in Ireland. NCI is structured as a Company Limited by Guarantee, governed by a Board, led by a Steering Committee and administered by a Secretariat. As of 2021, we have over 1,000 members.
Our vision is for an Ireland in which natural capital and ecosystem goods and services are valued, protected and restored.
Our mission is to value, protect and restore Ireland’s natural capital and ecosystem services. We will do this by supporting the adoption of natural capital concepts in public policy and corporate strategy, promoting informed public and private sector decision-making, and assisting in the establishment of a national natural capital accounting standard.
