Towards Corporate Sustainable Development: The ITT Flygt Sustainability Index
Mälardalen University, Department of Public Technology.
2006 (English)Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
Abstract [en]

This thesis suggests a method for measurement of corporate contribution to sustainable development, looking at how well a company stands up to its policies and commitments regarding sustainable development.

A sustainability index is developed and calculated for ITT Flygt AB over a three years period (2002-2004). The index structure is based on scientific literature and interviews with ITT Flygt and four other engineering companies.

The purpose of the index is to support corporate sustainability-management.

The index is calculated by aggregating some forty sustainability-indicators. These indicators are individual to each company and are designed to measure the significant sustainability aspects of the company.

Besides from providing one aggregated sustainability-value of the company, the index also provides sub-indices, which support the interpretation of the index result.
