There exists a multitude of standards and regulations related to sustainability. It is critical to enable users to identify applicable standards across entire lifecycles of products, processes, and services. To synthesize this variety of standards, it is important to analyze them from the information modeling point of view, while incorporating the requirements of various stakeholders. Here, we propose such a multi-perspective approach based on the Zachman framework. Using this approach it is possible to identify gaps and overlaps between, harmonize, and develop implementation strategies for sustainability standards. We then introduce our case study results as part of the Sustainability Standards Portal.
