About this Event

Recognizing the critical role of the private sector in the effort to avoid, reduce and reverse land degradation, the UN Convention to Combat Desertification has launched the Business for Land Initiative (B4L). B4L brings together business sector partners worldwide with a keen interest in supporting and implementing sustainable land management measures. The initiative aims to support the private sector to seize opportunities and manage risks associated with land degradation along value-chains.

Increased disclosures and the adoption of targets have been identified as key levers to improve businesses’ impacts on nature. Acknowledging the opportunities of these two areas of action, B4L is engaging leading reporting initiatives on strengthening corporate land-related disclosures and target setting. Following an introductory meeting organized by B4L in May 2024, we are now holding a workshop to dive into the land-related reporting indicators identified by some of the reporting initiatives to select those indicators most suitable to monitor corporate sustainable land practices.
