Abstract

One of the principal needs in sustainable manufacturing is that companies are willing to embrace new, more sustainable and effective solutions. This report focusses on developing guidelines to support those companies who are interested to improve their rating into the SustainValue metrics or their sustainability-performance KPIs. Thus, it (a) defines the steps to be done, (b) the methodologies, techniques and solutions that can lead toward better results, also indicating potential business returns on investment for sustainability, following SustainValue indications, and (c) a portal for performance verification for integrated production value-networks, allowing anonymous benchmarking among different value-networks. In fact this report is a continuation of the work conducted under T4.1 and T4.2, in WP4. The T4.1 delivered a framework for sustainability performance assessment and improvement demonstrating logical causalities among a variety of important factors for sustainability performance within a manufacturing network. This took into account the underlying complexities and interdependencies in a networked environment. The T4.2 subsequently, provided suitable measures for assessment of sustainability performance of the organization and its network. It captured the areas that the organization has to leverage in order to improve on sustainability performance. It paid due attention to the intangible character of the performance categories and developed maturities as the way to describe and assess the state of performance factors.
