NORIA21SM - Normative, Oriented towards Results, Indicator Analysis for the 21st century.
From the agreed-upon goals, we help to create a list of appropriate technical indicators of
sustainability that reflect the project character and its stage (master plan, facility plan, process
design). Cost, energy consumption, ecotoxicity, jobs created, and carbon footprint are all
examples of such indicators. Others, tailored to the specific site can be used.
In a close collaboration with the client and other agencies, we make sure that the indicators
list reflects the community objectives. At the same time, we assure that  indicators are
oriented towards practical results and implementation.  In some cases, the values of the
indicators may be easily determined during planning or the design process while in other
situations a more comprehensive approach (such as LCA - Life Cycle Assessment) is needed.
