Indicators of progress for the food priority

We use certain indicators to track the progress in each priority area of Auckland's Climate Plan. These indicators help us measure how well we are achieving our climate goals.

​How we measure progress for the food priority

The main indicators of progress are called headline indicators. These provide information and insights about the areas where we have a strong focus and where we are taking action.

Headline indicators

The main (headline) indicators of progress for the food priority are:

  • the percentage of food scraps in domestic waste (rubbish bins) going to landfill
  • the amount of domestic food scraps collected by Auckland Council food scrap collection service and diverted from landfill.

Other indicators

  • The total amount of domestic food waste (or scraps) in tonnes going to landfill.
  • The number of Aucklanders eating a plant-based diet.

Progress of all headline indicators is reported in the annual progress reports.

Progress of all other indicators is reported every three years.
