Metrics

Metrics and frameworks

Sustainable metrics are linked to the frameworks you’re working with and the priorities you have defined. GRI has a different set of indicators than LCA or social metrics. The available frameworks and priorities you have set can be a good starting point for choosing your metrics.

Environmental indicators

Environmental indicators have been established by various frameworks and methods. These include, among others:

  • carbon emission;
  • human health;
  • ecosystem diversity;
  • resource use;
  • water use.

These indicators are very concrete and measurable.

Social indicators

Social metrics are less well established and less commonly used. Some examples are:

  • percentage sick leave;
  • workforce commitment;
  • stakeholder engagement;
  • time spent on community service;
  • rating of general conditions by clients.

Of course, there are hard and soft metrics. It’s important to consider the differences as well as how they can complement each other.
