The Sustainability Governance Scorecard© (SGS) is an impact-research conducted to help improve the state of the world by speeding up learning from peers. SGS does not aim to measure the companies’ sustainability performance but seeks to identify how the best companies govern and conduct their sustainability efforts. It is intended to be utilized as an improvement tool for better governance of sustainability issues and presents best-practice examples of various sustainability governance steps to accelerate learning.
