Although business entities also use sophisticated and field-proven performance monitoring systems, in the case of sustainability-oriented business solutions, effectiveness quantification systems are often lacking. It is important to know, however, what contribution the business sector is making to achieve these macro goals. Accordingly, we are putting emphasis on increasing effectiveness through both monitoring and measurement.
Together with scientific, NGO and corporate experts we identified company-level measurement indexes and indicators that measure operational sustainability and contributions to macro objectives. A list of 77 indicators was complied, from which companies can select those which best match their activities, strategy and objectives, enabling them to contribute to sustainability at an organizational level in a genuine, focused way – we encourage newly joining companies to apply these indicators from next year onwards.
