This project develops a framework and software system for evaluating and applying indicators in common planning and reporting situations.

It seeks to address shortcomings in other indicators for monitoring and measuring sustainability, which often become detached from the practical tasks at hand in managing businesses, preserving the environment, or promoting social and cultural wellbeing. The project will benefit Australian organisations by developing clear, practical sustainability goals; lowering cost of reporting compliance; and improving sustainability practices.
In 2012, the project team completed a basic prototype of the software and demonstrated it with several reviewers. Formal evaluation and write-up is planned for 2013.
