Mindset
Indicator

The Sustainability Mindset is a way of thinking and being which results from a broad understanding of the ecosystem, social sensitivity, and an introspective focus on personal values and the higher self.
The Sustainability Mindset Indicator (SMI)  is the first instrument to map and profile where an individual is on their journey towards a Sustainability Mindset. It is a questionnaire consisting of 36 contrasting statements, exploring three dimensions of our mindset for sustainability: the cognitive, the behavioral and the affective.

The SMI provides participants with personalized reports that highlight their unique skills and opportunities to shape a better world. It includes questions for reflection to expand awareness and to leverage personal resources.

The SMI TEAM is  here to support you, your clients, coachees or students on their way towards a Sustainability Mindset.

Joining the SMI community provides you with resources, networking opportunties and multidisciplinary applications. Our trainings include:
