Sustainability Indicators

Family businesses have distinctive governance structures, ownership norms and family dynamics that have an impact on performance. As such it is critical that sustainability indicators for family businesses recognise the unique attributes of family business models and consider measurements that guide, further advance sustainability practices and facilitate contributions to the SDGs.

The Family Business Indicators examine a family business’ performance on specific sustainability practices and are designed to complement the UNCTAD Core Indicators. They explore the company’s culture, policies and practices on specific governance, supply chain, community and company practices, and aim to measure their impact on the wider ecosystem.
