The 7 Toolkit – Your Pathway to Resilience

Aspon Consulting and its long time partner CSR Company International are in the process of setting up the T7Toolkit Company for our unique software tool. After successfully developing and launching the software over the last year, the two partners have now decided to create a separate entity for the software to easier develop, market and sell the product. The 7 Toolkit is a unique piece of software that evaluates organisations of any size, sector and industry, their subsidiaries, supply chains and members on corporate responsibility and sustainability and related risks. The pioneering web-based software follows the structure of the ISO 26000 standard (the international standard on social responsibility) and complies with numerous other international standards on sustainability. It is fully customisable and the only software solution currently on the market that can help your organisation, its supply chain, subsidiaries and/or members evaluate and improve their current sustainability performance and exposure to related risks, from start to finish. The toolkit can help you identify current gaps, engage stakeholders, identify and prioritise material issues, set actions and KPIs, draft a sustainability strategy and track your performance over time, thereby becoming more resilient. It can also help you rank and screen your suppliers, subsidiaries and/or members based on their sustainability performance evaluation scores, so that you can flag any issues and physical audits needed. 

About the 7 Toolkit:

  • It was developed via a collaboration between CSR Company International (based in Austria) and Aspon Consulting (based in Cyprus).

Why the 7 Toolkit?

  • It has a simple methodology.
  • The analytics are in-depth and robust; an organisation is evaluated on 7 core subjects, 41 issues of interest and over 330 key considerations. 
  • It is a versatile fully customisable tool both in terms of the criteria used for the evaluation, the ranking and the screening. 
  • The results are immediate and are presented in graphics that are visually appealing, interactive and can be exported for use in reporting

Organisations are facing increased pressures to be sustainable and responsible, whether that’s from clients, employees, regulatory bodies, shareholders, or other relevant stakeholders. Software solutions that are based on international standards for sustainability are in demand, and there is currently limited competition available locally and internationally. Furthermore, there is no software currently on the market that offers a comprehensive all-encompassing solution to organisations to evaluate and improve their own sustainability performance and that of their supply chain, subsidiaries and/or members. This is where the 7 Toolkit comes in; your pathway to resilience.
