  Basic Sustainability Assessment Tool
Feedback Form
     The Basic Sustainability Assessment Tool (BSAT) enables organizations to self-assess their sustainability-related performance. It assesses their progress toward causing no harm to communities, employees, and the environment. It also gives credit for positive impacts on people and the environment.

   The generic assessment tool is for any-size organization in any sector, anywhere. It is especially intended for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The challenge is to make it a reasonable but comprehensive self-assessment. That's why your feedback is important to us.
Both the Excel and online versions of the tool are available here.
     Version
  
The tool is available at the above link in two versions: an Excel workbook and an online version.
  Online version
