What is the e3 Rating


The e³ rating system evaluates project proposals in regards to the effects of their COMPLIANCE TO PLANETARY BOUNDARIES and their contribution to the United Nation’s SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) 2030 agenda. Out of this evaluation, the e³ rating score obtained relates to the economic value the project creates.

The e³ system measures the dual effects of the project activities relating to:

  1. Activities that cause disturbances to the nine Earth system process boundaries
  2. Activities that bring the processes into balance

This rating score is based on the mathematical combination of the following three dimensions:

  • economical
  • ecological
  • ethical
