    Hi members! Targets are often used to mask action and many organizations make commitments that are excellent soundbites but are either unattainable or not fit for purpose. Some sent targets with the best intent however their outcomes can be piecemeal and not drive towards systemic change. Here’s my question: What are some best practices for setting meaningful sustainability targets?

      We are rugby club in the south of england with a large stadium that is also used for non sproting events. With different levels of activity each year depending on the team’s successes and the other live events booked we thought it necessary to have targets that reflect this. We decided to measure our carbon footprint in terms of tCO2e per pound spent. We then set these targets against baseline performance, historical trends, and future growth projections. We tried to balance being ambitious yet realistic, challenging ourselves to innovate and improve while remaining attainable within given timeframes and resource constraints.
