This tool was designed to:
- Enable companies to better assess the significance of land to their business.
- Create awareness of the importance of land degradation and catalyze actions towards the implementation of sustainable land management projects.
- Not require an intensive data collection effort to generate results. The land materiality screening tool was jointly developed by the ELD Initiative and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), with the support of CH2M and Sustain Value. The development of the tool was informed by a cross-sector group of companies, small to large.
