Sustainability Competency & Opportunity Rating & Evaluation
SCORE is a sustainability assessment that can help you determine where your organization is on the road to sustainability and also identify new opportunities. SCORE was developed by AXIS Performance Advisors, in conjunction with the International Sustainable Development Foundation and the Zero Waste Alliance, to assesses organizational practices with regard to sustainability. [More about SCORE.]
“I think that SCORE is an excellent tool to help an organization assess its internal strengths and weaknesses with respect to sustainability. I think it can be very helpful to organizations that are committed to sustainability and have a desire to improve and excel.”
—Dean Kubani, City of Santa Monica
