The international TASK™certificate on sustainability knowledge.
The world needs a TASK™Force!
While the world and organizations need experts capable of solving specific problems in their field, given the challenges, their urgency, and interlinkages, it is now essential to mainstream sustainability literacy, and ensure that the growing number of graduates and professionals have a sufficient understanding of sustainability, as well as the ability to integrate it into their professional practices and decisions.
By launching the first international certificate of sustainability knowledge, Sulitest aims to create a lever for systemic change that will make sustainability the common language for all.
The TASK™ exam
The R&D committee committee supported this development by ensuring the consistency of decisions made by the operational teams. Finally, a team of external writers (experts and researchers on sustainability issues) participated in the creation of the assessment content: the questions/answers and their alignment with the TASK™ knowledge domain.

Different sources of inspiration
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are now a well-known framework, so it was important for us to align ourselves in part with this framework.
This approach builds on the framework developed by the Stockholm Resilience Institute, which identifies nine planetary boundaries that govern the stability and resilience of the Earth system. This approach falls under the school of thought that the role of humanity, society, and the economy must fit within the Earth's systems and its physical boundaries.
The Doughnut model is based on the planetary boundaries framework and consists of two concentric rings: a social foundation, to ensure that no one lacks the essentials of life, and an ecological ceiling, to ensure that humanity does not collectively exceed the planetary boundaries that protect Earth's life support systems.
