Can sustainability be measured?

Play and listen to the answer

It’s not just that we can track the impact of our decisions regarding sustainability, but it’s also that people and organizations should be encouraged to do it. Measuring sustainability would give you a better idea of what is working and what should be improved.

But before measuring anything, I suggest that you understand the meaning of sustainability and then reflect on how sustainability relates to your organization. Next, you could start a process of changes to be more sustainable and then you could track the impact of your decisions. Some popular initiatives to measure and report on sustainability include:

  1. GRI (for organizations to the general public)
  2. SASB (for organizations to investors)
  3. EPDs (for products to the general public)
