OUR
VISION

Six Capitals Advisory seeks to empower organisations by providing relevant information, tools and resources to support them in effectively making a positive impact.

WHY SIX CAPITALS?

The six capitals are stocks of value that are affected or transformed by the activities and outputs of an organisation as it seeks to create value over time.

The six capitals framework for the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) includes the following six capitals:

FINANCIAL

MANUFACTURED

INTELLECTUAL

HUMAN

SOCIAL AND RELATIONSHIP

NATURAL

The primary purpose of an integrated report is to explain to financial capital providers how an organisation creates value over time. The best way to do so is through a combination of quantitative and qualitative information, which is where the six capitals come in. The capitals are stocks of value that are affected or transformed by the activities and outputs of an organisation. An organisation’s business model draws on various capital inputs and shows how its activities transform them into outputs.

Similarly, investors – as providers of financial capital – should seek to understand how the six capitals, or stocks of value, are affected or transformed by the activities and outputs of an investee company and/or investment portfolio.

Six Capitals Advisory partners with investors – such as retirement funds, fund managers and investment consultants – to create and sustain value for their clients, beneficiaries and broader society. We believe that through these efforts, investors can help to shape companies that will lead to a more prosperous and equitable society.

WHY
THE PADLOCK?

Six Capitals Advisory seeks to unlock value creation opportunities for companies and investors through the proactive consideration and integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Equally important to value creation, is protection against the impacts of ESG risks when not proactively identified and managed.
