This year, we reviewed our key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure they aligned with the new McGowan Government’s goals and the Forest Management Plan 2014-2023 (FMP).
In addition, over the last two years there has been a shift in the FPC’s focus to concentrate more on the core business of expanding the plantation estate as well as increasing internal efficiencies in all aspects of our business. The organisation has also undergone a functional review and structural change to facilitate the planned efficiencies.
Consequently, the FPC’s existing KPIs have been amended and now offer greater coverage.
Several new KPIs are being reported for the first time focusing on operational efficiency and improved business outcomes, environmental performance and healthy stakeholder relationships. These new indicators have been clearly identified. Some existing indicators have also been expanded to provide greater coverage. Changes to these indicators have also been identified. KPIs that are to be discontinued next financial year are reported separately to provide continuity from previous years.
As a result we are reporting against 10 new KPIs, which are indicated below.
