In this table, several key indicators (also called efficiency indicators) are calculated, for instance kWh/m2or environmental costs/turnover. Key indicators are convenient to monitor your data over the years. You may also use them to compare your company with other companies.
You can adapt this table in finetuning key indicators. You may add or remove key indicators, or change the titles of some key indicators.
Comparing indicators with the sector
At www.envirometer.eu you will find the average values for key indicators in various sectors. To compare your key indicators with the sector go to indicators and select 'industry sector average'. The grey collumn on the right is the industry sector average. For instance:
- If your gas use per m3 building volume is close to the best results in the benchmark of your sector, the possibilities for large savings on your gas use are probably limited.
- If your waste separation percentage is lower than average in the benchmark, it makes sense to consider additional measures with regard to the separation of waste.
- Comparing the indicators is a means to locate economic possibilities. It is not suitable for determining whether you are doing ‘well’ or ‘poorly’, since your company specifics may have considerable impact on the final indicators.
- Some indicators represent absolute numbers and are for that reason not comparable with the average number of the sector. This is the case with: 'Total energy consumption building', 'Total CO2-emission' and 'CO2-emissions scope 1 &2'
Calculating the indicators
Key indicators such as ‘km business transport/fte’ use your environmental data rather than the costs. That is to say that if you only enter the costs, without estimating the matching number of kilometres, this item will be counted as zero kilometres and so the key indicator will be lower.
