What has been achieved so far?

From the announcement October 2015 onwards, we progressed on several fronts. The official launch was kicked off with an event in Amsterdam, February 2016. The second part of the launch was organized in Hong Kong (March 2016). The specific goal of this event was to reach out to manufacturers. A project governance model was established and a multi-stakeholder steering committee was elected by the signatories. The year 2016 was about launching the project, setting up an independent multi-stakeholder governance structure, developing and approving the strategy, engaging with stakeholders and starting the work together with the signatories. The first version of the tool was being launched by the end of 2016 and given for pilot testing in 43 facilities and review by all signatories early 2017.

Path forward

The second prototype of the tool will be piloted in Q3 and Q4 2017 and will include verification. Moreover, the project will organize a semi-public stakeholder consultation on this version. Feedback based will again be integrated in next iterations. The final version of the tool will be publicly available and will aim to replace the current diversity of assessment tools in 2018. In addition, an ongoing stakeholder engagement and communication will take place throughout the two-year project timeframe.
