Sustainable Development Performance Indicators

Sustainable Development Performance Indicators


UNRISD (Instituto de Pesquisa das Nações Unidas para o Desenvolvimento Social)


UNRISD commenced a four-year project which aims to assess and improve methodologies and indicator systems that measure and evaluate the performance of a broad range of economic entities in relation to the vision and goals of the 2030 Agenda.

Such entities include both private sector firms and myriad enterprises and organizations that make up the social and solidarity economy (SSE). Over several decades, the effectiveness of sustainability measurement and reporting has improved significantly due to numerous standard-setting initiatives, and revisions of existing tools and models. The question remains, however, whether current measurement and reporting models adequately address a set of 21st century conditions and challenges, key aspects of which include:

  • the rise of SSE, blended value enterprises and impact investment that promote or prioritize social objectives;

  • trends and imperatives associated with the Green, Sharing or Circular Economy, which aim to decouple negative environment impacts from the process of economic growth;

  • technological and structural change associated with digitalization, industrial restructuring, financialization and labour market flexibilization;

  • normative challenges associated with human rights, rising inequalities, climate change and resilience, as well as the broader goals of integrated and transformative change demanded by the 2030 Agenda.
