What Constitutes a Company Landscape Investment or Action?
This paper presents a common definition of what constitutes a landscape or jurisdictional investment or action, to make it clear for companies and others when an action or investment counts towards landscape or jurisdictional outcomes.
The paper then highlights five key characteristics of landscape investment and action, such as shared goals defined with local multi-stakeholder input as well as aims that have impacts beyond individual supply chains. ISEAL’s paper then concludes with what the five key characteristics might look like in practice, with details of what each means for companies, and potential challenges that have been identified that might get in the way of successful implementation.
This paper is the first in a series from the landscape and jurisdictional practitioner community, coordinated by the ISEAL Alliance. The brief is the first in a series to present collective positions of a landscape practitioner community coordinated by ISEAL that includes CDP, CI, Earthworm Foundation, IDH, Proforest, Transitions, TFA, and WWF.
