We provide a range of services around quantifying and valuing issues relating to natural and social capital and sustainability.


Sustain Value provides services to clients under three inter-related practice areas: Natural Capital, Social Capital and Sustainability.  In doing so, we help our clients to reduce their risks and costs, and to enhance their reputation and revenues.   

A new service, offered in conjunction with our partner, Climate Care, is now available for our clients to evaluate the extent to which their company or projects are 'Net Positive', and identify the most appropriate actions they can take to work towards that goal.    

Please download Sustain Value's two Briefing Notes which provide a high-level overview of key technical areas we work on.  Watch out for planned additions in 2018 on water valuation and marine and coastal valuation.

Air Emissions
"NAB recognises that all companies are dependent on ecosystem services, either through their supply chains, around their operating sites or via their customers.
We see that managing natural value includes the economic valuing of ecosystem services and .... accounting for them within traditional business frameworks and the way we do business." (Cameron Clyne, CEO, National Australian Bank)
