All cities are invited to provide 15 simple data points to receive a scorecard of their sustainability performance.
This interactive, crowd-sourced database will allow for longitudinal and comparative analyses of city sustainability performance, revealing trends of progress and opportunities for improvement.
The results of this global rating will be published annually in Corporate Knights magazine.
