Opinion of tools
Name of the tool
Best Value and Sustainability Checklist (SOLACE, I&DeA, Local Government Association)
Positive comments about the tool
• The checklist asks far wider questions than the average checklist for example Does the service put sustainability into practice and encourage others by using Fairtrade products such as tea, coffee etc?
• The checklist is summarised by a list containing spaces for the changes that are to be made to the Councils services as a result of the checklist.
Negative comments about the tool
• The checklist is very broad in scope and therefore not in depth on a number of issues such as waste.
