Targets Calculation Methodology

Measurabl’s Targets feature allows you to set and track sustainability goals related to your portfolio utility data and usage! When setting targets, it is important to be acquainted with the calculation methodology so that you can confidently measure and analyze your portfolio’s performance against your goals.

Refer to the table below for the complete Targets Calculation Methodology:

Which metrics are supported?

Energy, water, waste diversion, and carbon

What is the projection line?

The projection line is a projection of your performance based on the average annual change of your historical performance (starting from your baseline year)

What is the baseline year?

The baseline year is the starting point for your goal; the year from which your percent increase or decrease is calculated for the chosen metric

What is the target year?

The target year is the year you’re aiming to achieve your goal

How is the target line calculated?

The target line is your ideal performance line. It's calculated by taking the difference between your target and your baseline performance and dividing it by the number of years within your target period.

Target Line = (target - baseline performance) / (# years in the target period)

How is waste diversion calculated?

Waste Diversion is the percentage of waste that is diverted from a landfill. Instead of going to a landfill, that waste was donated, composted, or recycled.

Diversion Rate Calculation = 

(donation+compost+recycled) / [(donation+compost+recycled)+disposal] x 100
