Sustainable Industries Performance Indicator Framework

Framework Type: 

Publication Year: 

The performance indicator framework outlined in this report brings together and adapts business and community sustainability indicators so that they can be applied to geographically bounded areas with intense light, medium, and/or heavy industrial activity, such as industrial or business parks. Neither the eco-efficiency nor sustainable communities sets of indicators could be used to provide a complete picture of the sustainability performance of industrial areas. Some of the indicators have never been applied to industrial practice, or they have not been applied to measure aggregate performance to help provide a “big picture” assessment of sustainability.
