Abstract RMIT University Chemical Engineering has a stream of project based learning courses from first to final year. These courses are excellent vehicles for developing graduate attributes. This paper reports on implementation of sophisticated industry sustainability metrics in multiple projects from first to final year. The GEMI Metrics Navigator is a tool that assists organisations to develop metrics that support business strategy and contribute to business success. It facilitates analysis of complex issues in terms of environment, social and economic life cycles including stakeholder input. It uses worksheets to facilitate analysis of the most relevant business issues. The students used pair-wise comparison to rank and weight relevant issues with stakeholder input.
