This is a general question - it doesn't fit neatly into the categories . How do you measure a successful program? Specifically, is there enough data yet on what is considered % success? e.g. % increased recycling that could mostly be attributed to a csbm initiative; % reduction in electricity consumption? or, is an initiative considered a success if it pays for itself in cost reduction? With the current tight budget conditions in higher ed here in the states, we need to include concrete goals.
Thanks for your assistance,
