Assessing sustainability practices and implementation in manufacturing firms

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Nowadays, manufacturing firms are needed to be evaluated regarding their sustainability practices and implementation. There are four main frameworks for assessing sustainability practices and implementation: Awareness; drivers; barriers and relevance of sustainability indicators. Although they are used individually, incorporating them in one mathematical model is highly appreciated. Evaluating awareness; identifying drivers and barriers and assessing relevance of sustainability indicators are considered the most important objectives. As the major goal of this paper is to assess the level of practice and implementing sustainability, frameworks for performance measurement will be analyzed and presented, and the aggregated assessment will be introduced. The proposed frameworks will be also demonstrated with a real life case study.
