Decision making process
Name of the case study
Decision making process - stages
Recently a new list of indicators was drawn up during departmental and group meetings (worklunches) around some theme responsibles (people responsible for a specifical environmental theme and who participated to the achievement of the "environmental view".) The chosen indicators were to be supported by usefulness, representativity, sensitivity, long-term availability, costs, etc. Finally more or less 90 indicators were selected divided over eight environmental themes.
The facts that the discussion happened at a large base, and everyone had a say on the final choice of indicators, can be considered as a base or a reference. Some arguments (like : I never agreed) won´t be accepted. It is a question of common decision.
