  • Goal: Reduce waste
  • Target: Reduce waste by x%
  • Best Practice: Decommission resources
  • Measures: amount of waste removed
  • Good/Bad: Bad
  • Why? When does it work well or not?: Does not work long term as it requires waste to always exist, but it could be possibly used as a short term goal. Instead, set a positive goal of minimizing waste creation - such as having waste not exceed a set $ amount.
