Sustainability Performance Indicators

The challenge many companies face is to condense large amounts of environmental, economic and social information into a limited number of key indicators.

Sustainability Performance Indicators


Select the right information

Sustainability performance indicators (SPIs) are used as a tool to measure a company’s performance and to monitor and report on future progress. SPIs can be grouped in three areas covering either the economic, environmental or social aspects of sustainability.

  • Economic performance indicators: company turnover, profit, quantity of products sold, etc.
  • Social performance indicators: labor practices, human rights, and broader issues affecting consumers, community, and other stakeholders in society.
  • Environmental performance indicators: greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, waste output, etc.



A number of current initiatives recommends sets of broadly similar but not identical indicators. For more information regarding reporting guidelines see the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)CSR Europe, etc.


Our Consultancy Team can assist you in the selection and use of key environmental performance indicators (KePI) as well as provide expertise on social and economic performance indicators. We also provide training on sustainability reporting.
