Indiko Environmental Performance is a participative and free sector-level benchmarking tool featuring simple and relevant environmental indicators.
The tool can be used for an entire company or even a specific site or entity, and is available to all organizations determined to reduce their impact on the planet.
Measure your performance: the 29 indicators in the questionnaire produce your organization’s environmental dashboard in six key areas: waste, air, water, energy, biodiversity and environmental management.
Compare your performance: you can view the average score for organizations in your sector for each of the 29 indicators, representing a practical way of stimulating your brainstorming sessions and qualifying your results.

Environmental performance is defined as the “measurable results of an organization’s management of its environmental aspects”. It can be established using the 29 Indiko indicators defined by the AFNOR Group’s environmental experts based on research work and the ISO 14031 standard (Environmental management – Environmental performance evaluation – Guidelines). These indicators concern your organization’s generated waste, water and energy consumption, air treatment, biodiversity and environmental management.
Knowing and improving your environmental performance prompts organizations to redesign their activities and innovate. In addition to the direct environmental benefits, it serves as a way of enhancing your products and services, improving your image and saving money.
The environmental dashboard and the possibility of benchmarking your results generate invaluable data for making informed decisions. It is a tangible method for highlighting the objectives that your organization needs to achieve (reduce waste and diesel consumption, etc.). It is also a way of launching or improving your environmental strategy. The results obtained can be used to simplify communication within your organization and reporting to top management.
All companies (microbusinesses, SMEs, mid-cap companies and large organizations), local authorities and governmental agencies need to reduce their impact on the planet. Therefore, all organizations can use Indiko Environmental Performance, even entities or sites within the same group! You do not need certification or a label to benefit from the process.
In September 2015, a new version of the ISO 14001 international standard was released for environmental professionals around the world. This standard integrates an environmental performance assessment into an organization’s practices. Consequently, Indiko Environmental Performance is an operational solution for fulfilling this new criterion.
Indiko Environmental Performance does not set the bar: you set the bar for your organization according to your constraints and strategy. If you view the average scores achieved by other organizations in your sector of activity, you can compare your results and take an objective look at your environmental strategy. You have all the tools for defining your objectives.
Indiko Environmental Performance is free and anonymous. You can easily sign up online. Defining the profile of your organization (or site concerned) and its sector of activity will be useful for comparing your results against other organizations.
