Organizations should footnote details on how their products/services fall within the selected primary sectors. See usage guidance for further information.

Usage Guidance

  • These sectors are aligned with the UN International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) standards of economic activities.
  • Because the sector in which an organization operates (as categorized by its products/services) may differ from the sector(s) it seeks to influence, this metric is intended to capture the economic activity/operational sector of the organization. For example, a company develops mobile software to inform rural farmers of real time market price data changes operates in the ICT sector, but targets or influences the Agriculture sector. Thus, this organization would select "Information and Communication" as its Product/Service Type (PD3017), and "Agriculture" as its Sector to Influence (PD8808).
  • Organizations can report on this metric at an organization level (selecting all of the primary sectors of product/service economic activity of the organization) or at the specific product/service level (selecting the specific primary sector of product/service economic activity for the product/service reporting against).
