This mapping tool was designed to help you to assess and visualise your current performance and future potential on each of the 4 returns (inspiration, social, natural & finance). It can be filled in individually (and compared later) or jointly, and is designed to be used as a discussion piece more than anything else. It is a very flexible tool that can be scaled according to your wishes; whether you are looking at the 4 returns of a small market garden or of a $500M corporation; whether you are filling it in alone or using it in a workshop.

It comprises of twelve impact categories (such as resilient community to sustainable water management) to consider for you farm, with provided examples.
