Welcome to the Atlas of Natural Capital (ANK)!

Natural resources are the pillars of our society. The soil provides drinking water, wind gives energy and our topsoil enables food production. However, the way we currently utilize our natural capital is often unsustainable. Working more efficiently in tune with ecosystem services has many advantages for business, citizens and governments. Nature is a continuous source of inspiration that can help to tackle and mitigate current challenges like urbanization and climate change. The Atlas of Natural Capital (ANK) aids in providing this kind of tools for policy and society, and will help to find appropriate solutions, especially on the long-term.
