Quick description

ENCORE (Exploring Natural Capital Opportunities, Risks and Exposure) is a web-based tool developed to help better understand and visualize the impact of environmental change on the economy. This data tool can help assess the risks that environmental degradation (e.g. the pollution of oceans, destruction of forests), causes for financial institutions. ENCORE’s comprehensive database covers 167 economic sectors and 21 ‘ecosystem services’, i.e. the benefits that nature provides that enable or facilitate business production.
