The 2030 Compass is a software- and workshop- assisted process through which relevant stakeholders and SDG experts can evaluate how their strategy, policy or product might affect all 17 SDGs. It has two main stages:

  • The Context Mapper identifies the potential for positive or negative interactions among SDGs in a particular context (such as a country), based on factors such as socioeconomic conditions, the energy mix and the physical environment.
  • The Strategy Analyser provides a simple, robust workshop-based process and toolbox to analyse the sustainability implications of a planned intervention within that context.

The 2030 Compass can be used in a wide range of settings and has so far been successfully tested in product design, housing development, and local and regional strategies.
