This workshop session introduced attendees to the SEMPRe Policy Evaluation Tool. This tool will enable institutions to measure the impact of a particular policy, for example a behavioural change programme, on their environmental performance.  This will allow institutions to prioritise actions that need to be put in place to make them more sustainable. The tool has been developed for and implemented in a range of settlements in Ireland. It is currently being adapted, by this team, to the third level educational system.
