SDG Dashboard Project

A team of eight master students is collecting data to present proof of RSM’s active contributions to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The results will be presented in a real-time SDG Dashboard in summer 2021.

The team of students, called Metrics Matrix, will unleash the power of data from four RSM activities: education (in the curriculum and from research); engagement, operations, and planning and administration. The team’s focus is to corral and organise data about the sustainability activities at RSM so it can be quantified and qualified. The aim of this web-based dashboard is to gain the trust and support of stakeholders at the same time as it fosters organisational awareness of the SDGs. It will give a baseline from which to measure RSM’s progress, and will organise the collection of data for reporting and ranking.

The Metrics Matrix students are coached by Joey Johannsen, RSM’s Sustainability Co-ordinator and Positive Change Student Assistant Quint van Stuivenberg.

Metrics Matrix has adopted a system of tracking, assessing and rating from the Association of Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) to guide them as they began their deep examinination of the School’s activities.

The team is also working with Dominique van Deursen, the Data Science Specialist from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) on the design and functionality of the SDG Dashboard.
