How It Works

Why not Think about Sustainability the Way your Board does?

The Scorecard enables you to rate your progress in four fundamental areas:

  • Governance and Leadership
  • Strategy and Execution
  • Environment Stewardship
  • Social Responsibility

Across those four areas, the Scorecard has 17 Elements, each supported by a detailed Scorecard Template, which can be seen when you get started.

Within each of the 17 Scorecard elements, individual templates define the development stages of key sustainability indicators (KSI) – based on our experience with companies over the past 30 years.

Hover over the different parts of the graphic below to explore the different aspects of the scorecard.

Stage 1
Most companies are at this stage – and may stay here for decades. They engage deeply with sustainability, report extensive data, but do not change their core business(es).
Stage 2
In every industry, a few companies have stepped out front in noteworthy ways to tackle the most material environmental or social issue(s) faced by their industry sector across the full value chain.
Stage 3
A few companies have made bold, significant investments in beginning to transform their core businesses to be more sustainable.
Stage 4
Very few companies (but there are some) are well down the path of transformation in aligning their full business model and core business processes with tomorrow’s circular economy.
