CCI Lunchtime Talk: LandScale
ale is a new initiative which provides a standardized approach for assessing and
communicating the sustainability performance of landscapes where key commodities are
produced. Unlike traditional certification standards, LandScale does not prescribe practices.
Instead, LandScale distills the complexity of landscapes into reliable information about the
status of ecosystems, human well-being, governance, and productivity. This information can
be verified and made available via an online platform to enable credible communication of
landscape sustainability performance. LandScale assessments help drive improvements in
sustainability performance by informing locally relevant policies and management
interventions, guiding sustainable sourcing and investment decisions, and creating market
incentives for landscape sustainability.
