SMART Targets
 

You want targets that people can see them and have a chance to achieve them. Be SMART:

  • Specific: People appreciate a clear target - not a muddy one.

  • Measurable: Use an indicator to measure it.

  • Agreed: People are more likely to participate if they agree with the target.

  • Realistic: - but challenging. Take account of what can be achieved, rather than purely hopeful.

  • trackable: track all that contributes to
    the target.

The government targets for waste recycling, and for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions
