All kinds of existing and new (European) policies influence society’s sustainability. E.g. they affect the environment, the economy or institutions. Many tools (i.e. methodologies, models, approaches and appraisals) were developed to assess such policies either before or after they are implemented. Examples of such tools include Environmental Impact Assessment, Scenario Tools, Multicriteria Analysis, Cost Benefit Analysis and Accounting Tools. The SustainabilityA-Test project contributed to the EU’s and national sustainable development strategies by applying a consistent and comprehensive evaluation framework to validate these tools. Its main result is a catalogue of state of the art tools. In addition, an array of tools was tested in a case study on biofuel policies. The project was succeeded by the European INDI-LINK project.

The SustainabilityA-Test project was lead by IVM and carried out by four Dutch partners, thirteen other European partners and one Canadian partner. It was commissioned by the EU FP6-STREP programme.
