Several frameworks, roadmaps and tools have already been proposed for supporting sustainability management, however, they do not comprehensively consider environmental sustainability and business performance. In order to fill this gap, in this paper a two-dimensional tool is proposed. It is based on two sustainability dimensions: the “Sustainability Progress” dimension and the “Environmental Sustainability” dimension. The “Sustainability Progress” dimension assesses the stage of the CSR-environmental culture evolution in an organization. The “Environmental Sustainability” dimension indicates the firm involvement in CSR-environmental practices. The tool allows positioning a company in terms of environmental sustainability among its competitors and provides strategic guidelines for sustainability improvement.
