The New Zealand Sustainability Dashboard project is now completed. An insight into the project’s outcomes and implications can be found in the synthesis report: web version or pdf document.

In partnership with the country’s agricultural industry sectors, the New Zealand Sustainability Dashboard project will build online user-friendly tools for sustainability assessment and reporting. These tools will assist with:

  • Enabling overseas consumers/markets verify the sustainability credentials of New Zealand primary product exports through reference to monitoring results linked to internationally recognised sustainability frameworks and indicators.

  • Farmer, growers and primary sectors meet local regulatory demands through the monitoring and reporting of Key Performance Indicators relevant to New Zealand industry, society, ecology and land care.

  • Enhancing farmers and growers management decision making, and improve their overall sustainability, through the monitoring of key performance indicators relating to the sustainability of their business.
