Private Sector Engagement in Landscape and Jurisdictional Initiatives: How Companies can Engage, and What Claims can be Made about Their Engagement?

Description

This Jurisdictional Exchange Network webinar did a deep-dive on practical ways that companies could engage in landscape and jurisdictional initiatives. Participants heard directly from PepsiCo and Musim Mas, two companies that have taken concrete action in key commodity-producing landscapes.

Participants also became familiar with the structure of the recently published Landscape Scale Action for Forests, People and Sustainable Production: A Practical Guide for Companies, the interventions within the guidance, and how to use it.

To complement learnings on the practical ways to engage, the ISEAL Alliance will introduce their Good Practice Guide on the Verification of Jurisdictional Claims. This was followed by a discussion of what kinds of claims companies could make, and the type and quality of data they looked for on jurisdictional performance.
