Currently, some companies may not know where to start or how to scale up their environmental sustainability transformation, as they face a wide range of environmental sustainability issues and an even wider range of actions that they can take to address these issues. Green Compass™ is an environmental sustainability assessment and strategic roadmapping tool that helps companies to become more environmentally sustainable by better managing their carbon emissions, energy, water, and waste impacts, as well as chart strategic roadmaps for their transformation based on their current environmental sustainability levels. Through the four-step Learn-Assess-Prioritise-Plan model, companies will first learn about sustainability trends and methodologies and assess their companies’ environmental sustainability level., Next, they will prioritise areas with the biggest financial and strategic impact and chart the strategic roadmaps for their sustainability transformation based on their assessed sustainability level.

Companies can utilise Green Compass™ through the 16-hour Green Compass™ course, a collaboration between A*STAR’s Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and TÜV SÜD.

[The Green Compass™ course] helped us assess our company’s state of sustainability across different dimensions and quantify our sustainability efforts. We determined potential areas for tangible improvement focusing on organisation, product life cycle, supply network and operations, which helps with the transformation of a more sustainable business.

Through the Green Compass™ workshop, my colleagues and I learnt valuable insights to improve our company's sustainability performance in transition towards a green economy. We learnt how to access our company's performance quantitatively and qualitatively in the various aspects of sustainability. The workshop was well-organised and the facilitators were very helpful to guide us through all the sessions.

The Green Compass Assessment results were comprehensive, which helped us to identify not just which specific areas to work on, but how to work on them. The trainers were knowledgeable in the topic covered and were helpful in our specific issues when brainstorming for improvement ideas. As a result of the course, we put together a roadmap of improvement actions that we are excited to get started on to scale up our environmental sustainability transformation.

Senior Manager (Quality), I-PEX Singapore


Our key challenge was the lack of a data-driven structured approach to identify our sustainability objectives. During the 3-day programme, we gained better visibility of various cost structures within the company that impacts our sustainability agenda. The step-by-step consultative approach has also helped us to identify, assess, and prioritise key sustainability focus areas. We would like to recommend this programme to like-minded companies that are interested to further understand their sustainability performance and maturity level.
