Going through and implementing a series of actions from a checklist is a great first step in the journey to sustainability—but it is only a first step! If you don’t set meaningful goals for the future and evaluate progress over time, your initial efforts will mean nothing. Worse than wasting time, allowing your program to falter sends the wrong message to your stakeholders.
A strong Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) integrated with tailored sustainability metrics will allow you to prioritize actions, monitor and evaluate your progress, and make necessary changes. It helps to ensure you efficiently and effectively manage your valuable resources.
