Targets and Indicators

APRIL has identified a range of key indicators related to the company’s operations which are linked to the APRIL2030 targets. These indicators will be used to accurately measure its progress against quantified targets and support monitoring and reporting. Progress against these indicators will be published, providing transparency to stakeholders and the ability to assess APRIL’s performance against its targets.

Detailed information on the data and the methodologies used to calculate these indicators will be explained in a document to be made available. APRIL has used data from 2019 as the base year to evaluate and monitor progress against each target.
