This research is organized in two parts. First, a materiality assessment quantifies and monetizes a selection of material natural capital impacts of palm oil across the 11 leading producer countries. This is followed by a case study that quantifies and monetizes natural capital impacts in more detail in Indonesia, the largest palm oil producer, and also quantifies and monetizes a selection of human capital impacts. A scenario analysis illustrates how natural and human capital  accounting can be used in Indonesia to compare a selection of alternative techniques for growing palm oil which may lower impact costs.
