Want to make your business more sustainable but don’t know how? Or have you already become more sustainable but don’t know what’s next? In three easy steps, you measure, improve and communicate your company’s sustainability. We help you do this. It all starts with measuring sustainability; after all, to measure is to know.
Sustainability is also for SMEs
Sustainability (ESG) is also becoming an increasingly important concept in the world of SMEs. There are impending laws and regulations, and sustainability grants and it plays an increasingly important role with suppliers, customers and employees. However, beginning with sustainability is still a challenge. Fortunately, you don’t have to do it all at once, and a sustainability measurement is a good first step. This way, you objectively establish your starting point.
Measuring sustainability can be compared to starting a diet. If you want to be healthier, you also first need to know where you stand. For instance, what is your weight, BMI and fat percentage? Once measured, you will have a good idea of your starting point and know where to begin. It is the same with sustainability and ESG. First, you want to know where you are now, and then we can make a start.
Our platform measures your company’s sustainability in two steps. First, we examine which sustainability topics are relevant to you. We do this in an Impact Scan. Then, during the ESG Assessment, we delve deeper into how your company performs on those topics. This gives you a detailed picture of your strengths and where there is still room for improvement.
Both Assessments (Impact Scan, ESG Assessment) are aligned with international standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the EU Taxonomy. This way, you know you are compliant with everything, but don’t have to dig too deep yourself. Thanks to the intelligent and dynamic nature of the Assessments, the survey adapts as you give your answers. This way, the right question is asked at the right time. In addition, we want to help SMEs become a little wiser about sustainability. Therefore, each section in the Assessments contains extensive explanations of both the topics and the underlying frameworks.

Sustainability and ESG are a journey and many companies are just starting out. It is therefore understandable if the results of your first sustainability measurement are not immediately excellent. However, this is not a problem; every business has to start somewhere and it is more about the journey, rather than the starting point. Moreover, a business that has started with sustainability has a step ahead of a competitor that has not yet.
A sustainability assessment from Eevery has many advantages:
- Customised assessment, tailored to your sector, size and situation
- Performance displayed per ESG category
- Measurement calibrated to the EU Taxonomy, GRI, CSRD, SDGs and latest laws and regulations
- Performance analysis and benchmarking
- Expertise and guidance through Consultative Support
The next step(s)
Measuring is the first step towards sustainability. Once the Assessments are completed, we identify concrete recommendations based on your score and situation. These are mostly inexpensive and practical improvement suggestions that you can start working on immediately. This way, your company benefits immediately from an improved score and makes a difference. We also offer support and guidance to implement real change. You can also communicate your progress after the assessments with our reports. Use these to demonstrate your commitment and progress to your stakeholders such as customers, employees, suppliers and the public.
