A MESSAGE FROM THE "ROAD TEST" COMPANIES Loading...

We accepted an invitation from the World Resources Institute (WRI) to review and test an early version of the sustainability SWOT (or sSWOT ). We found the sSWOT to be a powerful means of showing how environmental challenges can shape strategic risks and opportunities.

We applied the sSWOT at our organizations in different ways and some of our stories are included in this guide. We urge others to use it to collaborate with internal colleagues and external partners (suppliers, customers, and
even competitors).

The sSWOT can help you assess options for action—together with colleagues and partners—on the environmental challenges creating new business risks and opportunities.
