Research Platforms

SIL is an open platform where any relevant topics can become part of its workplan. With initial focus on four Research Platforms being:

Interoperability is the magic word on the alignment between the sustainability standards and frameworks aiming to unlock seamless collaboration, reduce redundancy, and accelerates innovation across diverse systems and industries, ultimately driving efficiency and progress in our interconnected world.

Facilitating a more and comprehensive exchange of sustainability information among global, local and regional sustainability standards and frameworks organizations. Aiming to lower the cost of compliance, reduce double reporting requirements, aligning (digital) taxonomies, fostering improved transparency, comparability, and collaboration in addressing global sustainability challenges.

With sustainability information becoming mainstream business, professional service firms play an important role in ensuring its validity and credibility. Elevating it to a level of importance on par with financial information in decision-making processes. This requires the development of a future looking lens and the need to be on top of trends and developments to support business, investors and capital markets in questions around environmental, social and governance topics.

Raising awareness within the public sector on the opportunities and necessities for sector bodies to raise the bar on their own reporting. Acting on the principle of "practice what you preach," is to enable these organizations to lead by example, by developing the necessary skills and implementing sustainable practices internally while also driving broader sustainability initiatives and policies to benefit their communities, the environment, and society at large.

SMEs are the backbone of every economy and suppliers of crucial information on the supply and value chain. To ‘make sustainability work’, SMEs are for MNEs. In the transformation to a sustainable economy we need to make sure no one is left behind.

Enhance the ability of SMEs to provide useful and credible information at easy to understand and accessible low cost of compliance while at the same time enhancing the adoption of environmentally responsible practices that promote long-term economic viability minimizing negative environmental and social impacts.
