HEAT - The Higher Education Assessment Tool

Sustainability Benchmarking

How does your school’s public sustainability profile stack up?

Sustrana developed HEAT to show you.

We assess your selected peers, competitors, and institutions with whom you aspire to compete on twenty individual performance indicators to determine the level of an institution’s commitment to sustainability.

The result is a colorful, graphic comparison of each one’s public commitment to sustainability. This graphic output can be used to get buy-in for projects that will advance your sustainability program and improve your public profile.

With HEAT you can see where you stand at a glance.

Here is an example output below:
