Strategic Business Intelligence on Sustainability Subjects

Sustainability is not only a complex subject, it's a moving target. One of most powerful ways to get a handle on what you need to do and how you are performing today is by looking at how your industry, and others, are doing, and how the market and regulators are responding to developments.

RtA can perform its proprietary Sustainability Gap Analysis for your company, and competitive benchmarking against your peers, to establish how you compare and what you can do to make advances.

Our benchmarking practices are quantitative and qualitative, so you can see both how you "rank" compared to peers, and the actual practices that your peers, or others in relevant industries, are implementing that drive their sustainability performance.

The RtA Sustainability Gap Analysis


  • Comprehensive review of current company sustainability practices

  • Identification of areas of excellence and gaps

  • Guidance on how to improve lagging subjects

The SGA’s primary purpose is to measure a company’s sustainability performance today, showing where it is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Based on the SGA, RtA gives clients on the steps they need to take to "close the gaps".  

The SGA assesses a company’s current sustainability stance based on six fundamental categories necessary for establishing a meaningful strategy to adopt a sustainable business model:

  1. Basic Sustainability Indicators

  2. Sustainability Framework Application

  3. Direct Vs. Indirect Actions

  4. Engaging With Stakeholders & Partners

  5. Customer Messaging On Sustainability

  6. Sustainability KPIs

These six categories provide a comprehensive view of the company's sustainability-related activities, and can form the basis of how the company can best share its efforts with stakeholders in its sustainability reporting. 

In cases where clients wish to see a qualitative comparison of how they are performing compared to their peers, the SGA can be used in an Benchmarking exercise as well (see more under "Benchmarking and Business Intelligence").

Our benchmarking can be qualitative, assessing the performance of your sustainability strategies versus a range of peers with in-depth descriptions of their sustainability practices.
