Like a living organism our Sustainable Cities methodology continues to evolve. To create a measurable and comparable set of indicators from year to year the methodology retains the same five categories as it has since The Natural Step helped create it: ecological integrity, economic security, governance and empowerment, infrastructure and built environment, and social well-being. However, the total number of indicators analyzed for all categories has been reduced from 63 to 28 avoiding overlap and creating a manageable amount of data. The new indicators added include urban biodiversity monitoring, source water strategy, renewable energy initiatives, and health. Therefore comparing this year’s numbers to last year’s is not appropriate. Rather, trends are the best way to assess a city’s progress.
