Name of tool
Environmental management Control Panel

Decision making process - tools in decision-making process
The aim is to change day-to-day management decisions to a more sustainable way. The tool was implemented by the various stakeholders from the different fields of activities involved in the Theater functioning. They were helped, for free, by experts (Eco-consultants from ABECE :Belgian Association of Eco-advisers). </p> <p> The Environmental Management Control Panel enables evaluation, via the environmental performance indicators, the relevance of the decisions taken in various domains. These indicators are of 4 types: operational, management and economic and the state of the environment.</p> <p>The Royal Theatre chose sustainable measures whose results could be assessed and communicated.</p> <p>Indicators have been developed to express the operation of the institution as simple and compact data. These data only make sense and can only be compared if this related to a unit of reference, for instance in the TRM case, the number of seats. </p> <p>Environmental performance indicators could be found in the following domains:<br> Air / Refuse / Energy / Water and sewage / Odors / Noise / Complaints / Training /Transport /Environmental cost.<br> Examples for the TRM: kWh electricity /number of seats; % of the employees who are coming by car ; etc.</p> <p>To make sense, this evaluation was also compared with tangible, well-known references. <br> Examples: Each seat consumes 1700 kWh/year. To absorb the CO2 produced per year by the theatre, a forest park equal to "le bois de la Cambre" in Brussels (6O ha) will be needed. <br> The theatre paper consumption per year (programs, magazines, internal communication, etc) is about 32 300 kg equivalent to making a photocopy every 5 seconds night and day, etc</p> <p>Indicators defined for the TRM enables the assessment of performances (management) and the communication of the results to employees and public (communication). The Management Control Panel is used to change management decisions into more sustainable ones.</p>
