A SDG Quickscan is a quick and simple service that allows you to assess the extent to which your projects or investments are aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and Symbiosis in Development’s (SiD) systemic sustainability indicators.

The scan enables you to assess impacts that reach beyond environmental into social sustainability. In a single page overview, you can visually see how experts have scored the qualitative impact of each SDG, and several systemic sustainability parameters, such as resilience and circularity.

Why an SDG scan?

Improving sustainability performance can mean saving money, minimizing risks, improving brand value and reputation, getting access to capital earmarked for sustainability, and better employee recruitment, just to name a few of the benefits. To facilitate this process for you, we have developed the SDG Quickscan.

Brief risk and opportunity assessment

The scan is designed around the UN SDGs to ensure coverage of all major categories relevant to sustainable operations and to a healthy and thriving society. Except’s ELSI categorization system complements the scan, increasing the relevance of the results.

The various scan modules can be completed to different degrees of depth, depending on the size of the project or investment properties and the amount of time available for the process.

In addition to individual scans, we offer packages of 5 or 10 so you can consistently check on your projects. Contact us to discuss the custom-made details of our scan.
