This company guidance survey is part of ISEAL’s consultation to define good practices for company actions and claims in landscapes and jurisdictions. It is based on our draft guiding practices on Effective Company Actions in Landscapes and Jurisdictions. The survey consists of 17 questions and should take about 15 minutes to complete. Please complete the survey by 10 December and follow-up with us directly at landscapes@isealalliance.org if you have any additional input or questions. Thanks for your time.
