    This paper reports the results and outlines the progress of an on-going research project that aims to support Finnish manufacturing companies in sustainability measurement and reporting. The target companies' current state and future needs as well as challenges and opportunities of implementing sustainable indicators and reporting practices are described. Then, an early design concept of a new indicator framework is proposed. The framework suggests dividing and categorizing sustainability indicators based on two domains: level of organization and temporal focus. This is intended to assist companies in selecting relevant and useful sustainability indicators.
