What Are LandScale Claims?
A claim is a written communication about the status or results of a validated LandScale assessment that includes the LandScale name, logo, or platform URL. Anyone who meets the requirements outlined in our communication and claims policy is eligible to make a claim.

Contribution to landscape performance
Statement that links the actions of specific organization(s) to landscape sustainability status or trends
Assessment Milestone Claim
A holistic LandScale assessment was completed for District X in July 2021, the results of which are available on the LandScale reporting platform.
From 2018 to 2020, access to electricity increased by 20%, resulting in 80% of the population in the landscape having access to electricity.
As of 2020, Landscape X has an extensive protected area network, with 37% of its total land area and 67% of its natural forests under effective long-term protection.
In accordance with landscape X’s watershed restoration plan, company X planted 16,000 native trees and trained 1,400 farmers in the landscape on soil conservation practices between 2014 and 2017. This contributed to a 19% reduction in sedimentation in the landscape’s three main rivers between 2016 and 2020.
