Sustainability Metrics and Benchmarking

The True Measure of Success

Sustainable management programs require credible, quantifiable metrics. However, with so many competing sustainability indicators and metrics in use, it can be hard to separate the science from the hype. This confusion impacts manufacturers and retailers who are trying to establish specifications for their supply chains, as well as suppliers who are trying to meet the competing and often conflicting requirements of their customers.

As a neutral third-party with extensive experience in the field of sustainability, SCS can help. We have taken an active role in driving the development of scientific metrics that are sufficiently comprehensive to accurately cover all relevant environmental and social issues, yet nuanced enough to identify tradeoffs to help you avoid unintended risks. These metrics are used in the public and private sectors to gauge sustainability success and return on investment, evaluate compliance with supply chain programs and regulations, and certify sustainability achievements.
