Natural capital – naturally occurring assets that provide a benefit to the environment, population and/or economy – is one of the hottest topics within the property industry.

Our natural capital team is made up of professionals from throughout our business, bringing expertise from all property sectors and services. On this page, you will find a range of information about what we can offer you, as well inks to our insight and research pages on this and related topics.


Working with our landowner clients, we have found that many are looking to translate the discussion into real opportunities that fits with their vision.

Similarly, our developer clients are using natural capital to unlock development opportunities through biodiversity net gain.

For other clients seeking to increase or create new Natural Capital resources we offer management, transactional and specialist consultancy advice to help deliver corporate goals.

If you’d like to register your interest to be involved in a biodiversity net gain scheme, please use the form below, and someone will get in touch with you.
