Environmental benchmarking and performance indicators

Gauging the success or failure of a scheme is very difficult without evidence that is clear and concise. The best way to achieve this is to create meaningful benchmarks and use industry standard calculations.

Identify your environmental performance

The establishment of meaningful environmental benchmarks is often a difficult and emotive subject. However, a growing interest in the development and recording of such environmental performance indicators is now being seen. So if you’re asked to provide this information or if you simply want to identify your own environmental performance, use our Environmental Benchmarking and Performance Indicators table. Once you have the information required, you’ll then be able to set goals and target areas in which minor or even more significant improvements can be made.
