This article investigates sustainability in the performance measurement systems of Swedish manufacturing companies. It builds on a previous study that documents relatively few direct environmental indicators at shop floor level, which raises questions about possible indirect links between existing indicators and the environment that could be used to improve the environmental aspect of company´s sustainability ambitions. A method for identifying and categorizing indirect links to sustainability issues were developed. The results suggest that at shop floor level: 90% of the indicators have at least an indirect relation to one or more of the sustainability dimensions economy, environment and social of which 26% are at least indirectly related to the environmental dimension. Despite the many indirect connections participating companies perceive a need to improve sustainability indicators and some ideas are suggested.
