Purpose and goal
The 2030Compass provides a simple, robust process and toolbox for sustainability analysis of planned interventions e.g. new products, investments and strategies to ensure these contribute broad societal sustainability. The analysis and results are co-created in close interaction between a process leading team and the organization responsible for the planned intervention. The process is supported by a software tool that highlights synergies and trade-offs.
Expected results and effects
The 2030Compass has shown very good results in four different case studies. Participants have reached a deeper sense about the importance of the SDGs for societal development and how the Compass can contribute insights to improve planned interventions. The participating organisations, incl. consultants and public organisations, have shown strong interest to use the Compass. The project partners are now exploring how to implement and develope the Compass further while protecting its integrity
Planned approach and implementation
Development of alternative methods for analysis of how a planned intervention through its direct impacts on the SDGs may come to affect the societal development has been a centrepiece of the project. More dynamic modelling approaches were abandoned in favour of a more robust workshop-based process. Research to combine empirical data analysis with collective intelligence to generate country specific interaction matrices has been another important area with potential for further research.
