Sustainable decisions in line with the Sustainable Development Goals
Our systems thinking method and associated software will help you on this path.
A target system for sustainability
SDGs – a complex challenge
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, (SDGs for short) were adopted by the United Nations in 2015. The SDGs are divided into around 170 sub-goals, whose level of achievement can be measured by predefined indicators. They are to be implemented by 2030 and all have equal priority. When making decisions for the purpose of sustainable development, it is therefore important to consider not only the individual goals, but also their interdependencies.
Decision-making with long-term impact
Sustain2030 – your added value
The complexity of the SDGs can only be meaningfully tackled if we learn to think systemically. We use the Sustain2030 method to help you make sustainable decisions in line with the SDGs and co-creatively resolve problems that arise. With software support, we will assist you throughout the entire decision-making process.
When making strategic decisions, Sustain2030 involves eight steps, from specifying individual goals to evaluating alternative actions.
Advice and implementation from a single source
The Sustain2030 „Systems Thinking“ software maps the eight steps of the method, so that strategies and scenarios can be clearly communicated and tested by all stakeholders.
Sustain2030 offers an enormous degree of freedom in terms of both system design and evaluation. The indicators that are used to measure and compare the SDGs have been developed by the UN’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and act as the software’s database. The configuration, weighting and effectiveness of the KPIs can be individually adjusted. Both indirect pathways and the effects of time delays can be detected, which is extremely important in this complex environment.
Relevant action packages can be simulated and optimised using a dynamic cost/benefit analysis, thereby ensuring a high level of target achievement.
