Baseline assessments come in all shapes and sizes and it's important to know what level of detail is required to create an accurate sustainability baseline so that you can track and monitor progress towards long term goals. How accurate does our baseline need to be? What information should you gather? Now that you have all this information what do you do with it?

John Purkis, Senior Manager and Senior Advisor at The Natural Step Canada will explore the connection between the long term goals and vision of an organization and the baseline and a process to conduct  a sustainability baseline assessment. During this webinar you will:

•    be exposed to the principal of accuracy refinement
•    review the important interplay between the vision and the baseline
•    learn the three elements of a baseline analysis
•    be exposed to a few examples from other organizations
•    have the opportunity to discuss how to conduct a baseline in your organization or community.
