This paper highlights the seminal contribution of Rob Gray to the Greening of Accountancy on the criticality of capital maintenance and careful consideration of our resources. Today we are facing the extreme challenge of saving our planet and climate adaptation. Issues of intergenerational equity and resilience highlighted by Rob three decades ago remain today as paramount as they did in 1990 and his words remind us, we have far surpassed nature's tolerance.
