This is the new title for this major initiative of the group (original working title Strongly Sustainable Business Model Innovation Toolkit project)
A subset of the SSBMGroup's members has formed a Core Development Team for the development of the Flourishing Business Innovation Toolkit. This project includes a crowd-funded collaborative book project and the launch of a for-impact business will bring the Toolkit and complementary products and services to the world - helping to achieve the SSBMG's mission to help SME's adopt strongly sustainable business models.
SUST-BMA aims at developing a research-based and application-oriented methodology to analyse and assess companies’ sustainability performance at the business model level. The project’s overall purpose is to provide a framework for analysing, identifying, and supporting truly sustainable business models, taking into account their social, ecological, and economic impact. So far, no such business model assessment frameworks or tools do exist. The project follows an interdisciplinary approach, combining corporate sustainability management and applied informatics perspectives.
There are many possible synergies between the Toolkit Project and SUST-BMA (e.g. using the SSBMOntology and SSBMCanvas and providing feedback to Antony Upward and the SSBMGroup). As soon as funding has been approved, we will be able to share all the information needed to discuss inter- and cross-project collaborations!
