Healthy communitiesBy “building healthycommunities” we mean buildingcapital, whether this is natural,human, social, manufactured orfinancial.
The Five Capitals ModelThe Five Capitals Model provides a basis for understanding sustainabilityin terms of the economic concept of wealth creation or ‘capital’.Any community will use five types of capital to deliver its products orservices. A sustainable community will maintain and where possibleenhance these stocks of capital assets, rather than deplete or degradethem.The model allows communities to broaden its understanding of financialsustainability by allowing business to consider how wider environmentaland social issues can affect long-term profitability.
The Five Capitals Model for healthycommunities comprises of five values:1. Natural environment2. Human health and wellbeing3. Social interaction4. Manufactured assets5. Financial assets
Value 1: Natural Capital (environmental)Natural resources (e.g timber, gas, recycling) andprocesses (e.g climate regulation) used withincommunities to produce products or services andmaintain environmental balance.Enhanced by more efficient use of materials, cleanerenvironment and protecting eco-systems.
