Shared measurement of data and results is a key element of the collective impact model informing the operation of the Sustainable Destination Partnership. We worked with our business members, and our data partners Kinesis and the NSW Government's Sustainability Advantage program, to develop an annual reporting framework. This identifies SDP's baseline resource use and organisational capability. On an annual basis we measure our progress towards our targets.
In its first year SDP reduced carbon emissions by 5% and also won the international Innovation in Sustainability award from the Global Sustainability Destination Index.
Our second year was a disrupted one due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the commitment of our partners did not waiver and we were able to collect and share stories of best practice in sustainability in our 2020 Annual Report.
