If you want to measure the environmental performance of a number of buildings regularly, it is important that the Environmental Performance Indicators (MPIs) are easy to measure. To this end, the Health, Safety and the Environment Service (AMD) has chosen to measure the MPIs per square metre floor surface. The MPIs are thus the amount of power, water or waste per square metre floor surface.
It is easy to determine the floor surface of all buildings within the University of Groningen. MPIs are sometimes measured by building volume, or by the number of staff. Volume is not that easy to determine, however, and the number of staff and students changes continually.
