The Compass Assessment is built on AtKisson’s widely adopted platform for CSR and sustainability

  • N = Nature

Environmental impact, resource use, ecosystems, water, energy, climate change

  • E = Economy

Efficiency, employment, innovation, sustainable business model development

  • S = Society

Social responsibility, governance, corporate culture, ethics, equity, transparency

  • W = Wellbeing

Worker, customer, and community health & safety, worker opportunity, overall impact on quality of life

slide7

The Compass Assessment for Companies adds a fifth “direction” to the analysis: INTEGRATION

Business Integration = to what extent the company has adopted a whole-system approach to sustainability, vertically and horizontally

The Business Integration element of the

Compass Assessment includes ...

  • Extended product responsibility
  • Engaged corporate citizenship
  • Adoption and use of a lifecycle perspective
  • Customer / consumer engagement
  • Evidence that sustainability is embedded in top management and in company core values
slide8

The Compass Assessment is built on AtKisson’s widely adopted platform for CSR and sustainability

What the assessment delivers:

COMPANY A

NATURE

ECONOMY

SOCIETY

WELLBEING

COMPANY B

COMPANY C

Clear feedback on where your company stands, relative to sustainability goals, and relative to other similar companies

Overall ranking scores on an intuitive and transparent 100-point scale (where 100 = “perfect” and 0 = “nothing is happening”)

Detailed backing information on individual parameter scores, and the rationale / analysis behind those scores

Prioritized recommendations for areas where performance can be improved and risks minimized, in an integrated fashion

The Compass Assessment was developed for harmonization with the Global Reporting Initiative, The Natural Step, ISO26000, and other frameworks

slide9

Companies can be assessed externally (public information) and internally (non-public information)

The Compass Assessment can reveal differences between how a company

sees itself — and how it is seen by others

An internal review

shows some strengths

and reflects the actual

status of business

commitment to

sustainability

Internal View – Using All Available Information

An external review reveals what the same company looks like to consumers, investors, activists etc. who only have access to public information

External View – Using Public Information Only

slide10

We assess your GOALS AND POLICIES and your PROGRESS REPORTING against sustainability standards

Sample of final scoring worksheet for “Nature” (illustration only)

Shows absolute sustainability goal / performance standard and company’s performance

After extensive review, our analysts assign scores based on a 0-3 scale where 0 = No evidence of activity,

3 = Activity fully aligned (with widely acknowledged ultimate sustainability standards). The accompanying report explains the rationale for each score and compares the most important findings with best-practice performers.

benefits

The Compass Assessment helps you set your course for sustainability — and accelerate your progress

Benefits
  • Get a clear view of your sustainability reality from an objective, outside perspective
  • Help put everyone on the same page by showing them where the company stands, and where it needs to be heading in sustainability terms
  • Learn how consumers see your company compared to how you see it — and gain insights into what consumers might want to know
  • Clarify and sharpen strategy, by focusing on those areas most in need of improvement and most likely to produce sustainability ROI
  • Set performance benchmarks in place so that targets can be set, an improvement can be monitored and communicated
  • Find new pathways to competitive advantage in comparison to market leaders, and in relation to global sustainability risks and opportunities
what we need from you to perform the assessment

The Compass Assessment offers a high-return value proposition, with minimal disruption of your daily work

What We Need from You to Perform the Assessment

External Assessment

Nothing – we use only publicly available data

Internal Assessment

Access to internal information and people to interview (under strict confidentiality)

Your choice of other companies against which to benchmark

Clarity from you on the purpose, target audience, and desired impact of performing an assessment

Willingness to consider assessment results against absolute (not just comparative) standards – that is, against a long-term sustainability vision

slide27

We look forward to working with you ...
