FairShares V3.0 defines forms of wealth (six types of capital): natural, human, social, intellectual, manufactured and financial. Wealth is generated by stewarding nature to enhance human skills and capabilities, building relationships between people, enabling them to generate and share ideas that stimulate goods to meet human, societal and environmental needs.

By recognising and rewarding these six capitals, a more ethically grounded concept of wealth guides our human endeavours to create, distribute and reinvest forms of capital to meet a wide variety of needs.
