Reference performance indicators

From CESBA-Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following lists of indicators have to be taken as a reference in the development of the specific regional assessment tools. The indicators are organized by issues: Site, process quality, and the three aspects of sustainability, i.e. Environmental Quality, Social Quality, and Economic Quality. The number of indicators to be included in a specific assessment tool depends on its scope. The selection has to guarantee the CESBA assessment principles.
