The goal is to develop a set of support tools to business management for valuing their vulnerabilities and impacts on natural capital, particularly externalities. Economic valuation of externalities consists of a valuable support to make decisions on how to internalize them. Without failing to acknowledge the relevance of other natural capital value dimensions, such as its intrinsic value (regardless of use) and its ecological value (related to integrity and resilience of ecosystems), this publication is targeted at its economic value.
