The data provided on the 'Matrix' tab of this excel workbook is the data used for analyses conducted in the whitepaper 'Demystifying sustainability assessment and reporting frameworks An analysis of six of the most popular frameworks used by higher education institutions (HEIs) and a step-by-step guide to help HEIs get started' (2023). The whitepaper aims to provide a comprehensive and objective analysis of six of the most popular sustainability frameworks used by HEIs. Our hope is that whitepaper will demystify sustainability assessment frameworks and help institutional leaders identify which of them is best placed to help their organizations drive action and achieve sustainable outcomes. We also hope the guide will prove a valuable resource for sustainability practitioners and students with an interest in this topic. The matrix is a searchable database of indicators that can be analysed. Please note that the frameworks vary considerably in their methods and this needs to be taken into consideration when conducting analyses with the matrix. Use our infographic to understand what each sustainability and reporting framework measures
