Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are busy with the day-to-day running of their business. It can be daunting for them to prioritise their business’ sustainable transition. This sustainability assessment checklist helps SME accountants and advisors to support their SME clients to build their sustainability profile. It can be the first step to enable a smoother shift to more
durable business models and translate these challenges into new opportunities.

This checklist follows-up on our publication SME risk management: sustainability (2020). We encourage users to adjust it according to evolving sustainability related developments, market, partners’ and authorities’ expectations, and different SMEs’ needs.

See more of our SME risk management series, including our cover paper.
