What has been achieved so far?

From the announcement in October 2015, we have progressed on several fronts. The official launch was kicked off with an event in Amsterdam in February 2016. 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 project is on track with its aggressive two-year timeline and we are extremely optimistic about the direction of the SLCP. Our progress is a clear demonstration of what’s possible when all the stakeholders involved share a common vision, and don’t get distracted by individual agendas.

The first prototype (tool V1) was launched at the end of 2016 and used  during pilot testing in 43 facilities and reviewed by all signatories early 2017. The feedback was used for improvement of the next iteration of the tool. The second prototype of the assessment framework was launched November 2017. This version includes the updated tool plus a verification protocol. The proto2 is currently being tested in 175+ facilities in 23 countries and used for feedback in a public stakeholder consultation. Moreover, we’ve started the work on adoption&operation to prepare for 2018 and beyond.

Moreover, the project has organized a public stakeholder consultation on this version. Feedback received will be integrated in the next iteration – early 2018. Find out more about the Public Consultation here.

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 process will take place throughout the three-year project timeframe.

Meanwhile we are developing an operational plan to facilitate the adoption of the SLCP assessment framework (tool and verification methodology).

In early 2019, the future vision and strategic plan for continuing support and oversight of the SLCP converged assessment framework will be presented publicly.

To date, we have 160+ signatories to the project, which represents a diverse set of stakeholders within the industry.
