Do you want to contribute to a nature positive future?

Climate change is only one of the pressures driving the nature crisis.
We must adopt an
integrated approach to also address changes in land, freshwater and marine use, direct exploitation of natural resources, pollution, invasive alien species, biological disturbances, and other key drivers of nature loss.

We will help you measure, manage, and report your nature-related risks and opportunities.

The LUCAS approach


Look at your stakeholders and value chain

This includes defining your assessment boundaries, mapping your direct operations and supply chain, and starting the conversation with your internal and external stakeholders. 

Understand the impacts and dependencies on nature

This stage delves deeper into understanding the local states of nature in your direct operations and supply chain, your material nature-related impacts and dependencies, physical, transition, and reputational risk factors, and understanding how your stakeholders prioritise ESG-related topics (Environmental, social, and corporate governance).

Commit to a nature-positive approach

Based on the material nature-related risks and opportunities specific to your organisation, we will help you quantify your pressures on nature according to a reference baseline and develop a commitment with time-bound, location-specific, and science-based targets that can be tracked with measurable KPIs. Commitments and targets will be tailored to each organisation: no two strategies will look the same. As part of our comprehensive approach, we also offer services to enhance supply chain traceability and ensure zero conversion and zero deforestation upstream.

Act toward your targets

We will help you put nature at the heart of your decision-making by following the mitigation hierarchy – a prioritisation framework that helps companies to avoid, minimise, restore, and compensate residual impacts (in that order) for responsible management of climate, biodiversity, or water impacts.

Share the results with your stakeholders

The LUCAS approach is adapted to meet the communication, reporting, and disclosure requirements for all types of stakeholders, including your partners, local communities, investors, clients, and financial institutions.

Why choose
the LUCAS approach?

Avoid carbon tunnel vision

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions to tackle the climate crisis is crucial.
But our activities have other effects on the environment:
• We are introducing novel materials like concrete, aluminium, and plastic to the environment.
• We are poisoning our waters and soils with excessive nutrients.
• We have compromised our freshwater and biosphere systems.

All these earth systems are interconnected, so we need an integrated approach that considers all of them.

Connect your success to people and nature

The LUCAS approach is designed to work for business and nature: greater efficiency, reduced risks, increased customer loyalty, and increased competitiveness are only a sample of the many ways you can improve your business strategy by integrating nature into your decision-making.

More people, customers, and employees want to choose companies that commit to consistent, value-based, and sustainable business practices.

Increase confidence for your stakeholders

Investors and financial institutions are looking deeper into the nature-related performance of their investment portfolios, showing preference for companies leading the way in sustainability.

They want to see that companies are prepared for and actively managing their nature-related risks and opportunities. 

Meet international standards

Our approach helps you meet the requirements set by leading standards, frameworks, and regulations including:
(Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures),
(International Sustainability Standards Board),
(Science Based Targets Network),
(Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation)

(Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive).
