AMS Lighter Footprint Strategy Chiu, Virginia; Clark, Amanda; Knill, Jonathan; Lam, Philip


The purpose of this report is to propose revised and updated metrics for the “AMS Lighter Footprints Strategy” (AMSLFS) document that was created in 2008 (Baker-French, 2013). The new findings will be achieved through conducting an assessment of the current targets outlined in the AMSLFS document, thus determining if they are still measurable and applicable in the context of the new Student Union Building (SUB) (Baker-French, 2013). The report will highlight the methods used to gather the research in order to make the appropriate recommendations to the key stakeholders. Methods include a literature review, key informant interviews, and a focus group. Further, notes gathered from a guest lecture on Logic Models are applied to help organize and coordinate the programs and actions plans under review. In our analysis we determine whether targets outlined in the AMSLFS document are still relevant to the new SUB. When targets were deemed still appropriate our conclusions propose applicable and actionable revisions and actions along with associated inputs, outputs and possible outcomes.
