Please Drop Natural Capital & PES from the Nature & Wellbeing Act

We, the undersigned, ask you to drop Natural Capital and Payments for Ecosystem Services from the Nature and Wellbeing Act Green Paper.

Why is this important?

Such monetary valuation lays nature open to the perils of commodification and market forces in our current pro-growth economic system, and we ask you to consider adopting alternative metrics in order to assess the state of nature here in the UK. We support the push for mainstream environmental education and the establishment of an active and potent, independent watchdog over governmental, legislative, institutional and corporate biodiversity duties.

Reasons for signing

  • You cannot assign a monetary value to the environment.
  • Nature is not for sale - there are some things that you can not and should not put a price on.
  • It has already been said: If we put a price on nature, sooner or later, someone will think it's a price worth paying. Nature is not a commodity.
