Developing Performance Metrics

New Online Tools Provides Better Resource Management
Hands-On Educational Workshop

8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Paso Robles - August 3, 2012

Knowing is always better than guessing in the business world and now you can take the guesswork out of the true cost of the resources that you use. The California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance introduces a free, user-friendly tool to assist growers and vintners in measuring and tracking their use of water, energy, nitrogen, and greenhouse gas emissions. Don't let your business be at a competitive disadvantage by spending more on vital resources.

At the workshop you will learn: 

  • What performance metrics are and the many benefits they have business
  • How to use the online calculator to determine total water use, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and applied Nitrogen per unit of production
  • Why the connection between water, energy, and greenhouse gases is so valuable to a business
  • Where to get energy efficiency rebates and incentives that PG&E offers to increase energy and water conservation in wineries and vineyards
