This document provides practical guidance for sustainability systems to support them in generating valuable and actionable insights from data. Utilizing concepts in data science, it is intended for sustainability systems seeking to maximise the value of their data, combine data sources, and enable improved data-driven decision making procedures.
The development of the guidance has drawn heavily on the collective experience of the ISEAL community and contains practical tips on how to overcome specific challenges related to data transformation. Being a particularly relevant use case for sustainability systems, the guidance is also supplemented by an entire Annex dedicated to the development of data-driven risk assessments.
This guidance is further supplemented by the document 'From Insight to Impact' which showcases a series of real-world ISEAL community case studies that illustrate the benefits that can come from changing decision-making processes to be more data driven
