SDG Impact Assessment Tool

Guide 1

The SDG Impact Assessment Tool is a free, online resource for research and educational institutions, companies, entrepreneurs, civic organisations, and public agencies to make self-assessments of impacts on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The tool is open for anyone to use and can help you to identify relevant sustainability perspectives of your work in a simple and structured approach. This is done by assessing an object’s impact on each of the 17 SDGs as either direct positive, indirect positive, no impact, indirect negative, direct negative, or more knowledge needed. The tool encourages reflection and collaborative learning of the SDGs and the links between them. This guide presents the tool and the steps of an SDG impact assessment. For your inspiration and guidance, some user examples and applications of the tool are described.
