Applying the Common Good Matrix reporting at BSL

In 2013, we became the first school worldwide to implement the Economy for the Common Good (ECG) organizational matrix as an assessment and reporting tool. In 2014, we passed the ECG audit. BSL applied the ECG matrix to evaluate and measure its own sustainability efforts and contribution to society against a holistic and relevant framework. Following a comprehensive self-assessment conducted in 2013 and a year of process optimization, we have now released our first official ECG Audit Report (download here). The report provides an overview of the outcomes of the evaluation process as well as a description of actions that were undertaken and recommendations for further improvements.

“We hope that we can provide some inspiration and motivation for others to also use the Economy for the Common Good matrix as a way to determine their contribution to society,” BSL’s Dean Dr. Katrin Muff commented on the report. She suggested that the matrix provided an outstanding tool for self-assessment and continuous development: “To us at BSL, this has proven a significant instrument to both identify blind spots and to engage our stakeholders to collaborate in the further transformation of our organization.”
