The Sustainability Leadership Scorecard (SLS) is encompasses new opportunities for your institution to measure its environmental impact and drive improvement. It operates as a planning and self-assessment tool specifically for colleges and universities to improve social responsibility and environmental performance through a whole-institution approach. The Scorecard systematically guides you through the design, planning and delivery of your strategic sustainability activities.  

The SLS was re-launched during October 2022 - read more here.

SLS Purpose
Developed in partnership with EAUC, the purpose of the Sustainability Leadership Scorecard (SLS) is to measure the sustainability performance within higher and further education institutions and provide a framework for continued sustainability effort. This can then be used to drive innovation and encourage knowledge transfer within the sector.

SLS Structure
The SLS comprises 18 standard frameworks developed to address current and emerging sustainability themes. Frameworks are grouped within four priority areas. Each framework is made up of 8 activities and scoring is given at an activity level. All scoring is based on a 0 to 4 scale.
