Land is the bridge between companies’ environmental and social sustainability agendas, and it is foundational to both. To implement their commitments on climate change, net zero emissions, human rights, women’s empowerment, and farmer livelihoods, companies must focus on land in agricultural value chains: who controls it, who can access it, who has rights to it, and who enjoys the benefits derived from it (‘land inequality’). This Briefing for Business presents eight land-focused ‘essential issues for business action’- and corresponding recommendations - that leading companies can integrate into their existing sustainability efforts.
