What is TMUG?

TMUG is the ToSIA Management and User Group. Any organisation interested in using and maybe even further improving ToSIA (an innovative, do-your-own-scenarios Tool for Sustainability Impact Assessment) for its further use, dissemination and development is welcome.

Functions of TMUG

The main purposes of TMUG are to:

  • maintain and promote the further development of the ToSIA tool and data;
  • facilitate the information flow between the members;
  • define the means and conditions by which organisations can have access to ToSIA;
  • keep a record, as far as possible, of development work regarding ToSIA Deliverables.
