Sustainability Management

Best practices, benchmarking, performance measurement, improvement planning.

Made simple. Customized by industry. Prioritized by value.

About The Sustainability Project

For all companies, it is a tool that lets you identify best practices and technology specific to your industry, assess where you have left business value on the table, measure performance against industry peers, get overall performance scores, plan improvements, and share results with clients at your discretion.

For supply chain managers, it accelerates the adoption of sustainability best practices by your supply chain teams and suppliers by making sector-specific know-how easy to access and understand, and its value clear and measureable. It also provides meaningful measures of supplier maturity in sustainability for RFP and survey processes by assessing performance against industry-specific, value-weighted practices.
