ELD Land Materiality Screening Tool
The ELD Land Materiality Screening Tool is a tool designed to enable companies to better assess the significance of land to their business. The objectives of the tool are to create awareness of the importance of land degradation and catalyze actions toward the implementation of sustainable land management projects. It was specifically designed to not require an intensive data collection effort to generate results. By answering a series of questions, the tool provides an estimate of the level of land impact and the level of business risk for a specific site where a company has an existing or potential interest. Based on the relationship between land impact and business risk, output is provided on options a company may take to minimize both. Users can compare the level of land impact and business risk between locations, enabling prioritization of action.
