Performance Metrics for the California Sustainable Winegrowing Program
Performance metrics are the measurable outcomes of business practices. The calculation and storage of amounts of natural resources consumed and other performance metrics have been and will continue to be incorporated into the California Sustainable Winegrowing Program to complement practice-based assessments and further promote, measure, and communicate continuous improvement. Knowing and understanding the relationship between vineyard and winery practices and measured outcomes is important for benchmarking and managing performance to optimize business operations, decrease costs, and conserve natural resources. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”
