dubbed, ‘Self Identification Program Number 4’ which is a ten key identification project for awarding an amount, with their strategic objective of helping Ghana to achieve the access of electricity nationwide by 2020. And the baseline as at the time of reporting was 31 st December, 2018 and was presented at the beginning of the year, which shows that, the baseline was just at the beginning of the year. Ashanti Region had about 91.45% access to electricity, Brong Ahafo at 80.89% access to electricity as well as other central regions of the country. The head of finance also explained by making emphasis on the number of communities that are connected to the national grid. In this context, this paper aims to develop a reference model of sustainability measurement system in order to measure corporate sustainability performance through the analysis of the complementarity of well-known sustainability measurement initiatives alongside sustainability literature review. It constitutes an attempt to propose a set of standard measures – what to measure and how – that could be embedded into organizations’ current performance measurement system helping to embed sustainability into the decision-making process and to forge a sustainability culture. Therefore, it contributes, primarily, to tackle the lack of standard
measures alongside its side-effects and the difficulty of definition of social and economic measures. 4.3.5 Values and resources for coming generations. The last set of indicators focus on Values and resources for coming generations, or what might be termed maneuverability. These indicators emphasize the economic, ecological and human resources we pass on to future generations. Another way of viewing this theme is to say that it concerns the avoidance of debts that tie up (or deplete) resources that could be put to better use tomorrow. The predominant impression is that public sectors and other corporate organizations are not passing on to coming generations a similarly large or greater set of values and resources than that inherited by the previous generation. For example, the use of nonrenewable resources declined for a period, but it is now increasing again. The total emissions of carbon dioxide show no clear trend. This indicator illustrates one of the most burning issues today that will influence prosperity for coming generations. Adaptation toward sustainability is under way, but much work remains. The Sustainable Development Indicators for corporate organizations, specifically the public sectors, show that we are improving our performance in a lot of areas, but still, we are not yet so good at making sustainable choices. We make better cars with less fuel consumption and less emissions. The environmental gain however diminishes because we tend to choose cars with higher performance and travel more by car.
