At Partners for Innovation we want to contribute to a more sustainable world. In order to realise this potential it is important to assess the impact of our projects.
The question is therefore, to what extent do the projects we work on contribute to the realisation of a sustainable society? Despite the fact that there are many initiatives in impact assessment of partial aspects, the question still is how much the contribution is on the whole.
The SDGs, the result of extensive negotiations within the UN, are aimed to work globally on sustainable development. When the impact is expressed in terms of SDGs there are two main benefits:
- First, it will give us a broad view of the impact of projects on all sustainability aspects.
- Second, it can bridge the gap between efforts of private firms and companies to public ambitions.
If you would like to know more about the applicability of the tool for your own project or have any suggestions, please contact Wouter or Elke.
