The U.S. Cities Sustainable Development Goals Index 2017

Who’s behind it? – Sustainable Development Solutions Network


How can it help? – This report by SDSN synthesizes data available across 49 indicators spanning 16 of the SDGs to produce an index and review of the 100 most populous cities in the United States in terms of their performance against the SDGs. This data provides a holistic and comprehensive assessment of the sustainable development challenges faced by different U.S. cities and points to the fact that all cities have some distance to go in terms of realizing the SDGs. A potentially useful tool for companies looking to provide sustainability solutions targeted at the city level, or as inspiration in terms of indexing particular landscapes and ecosystems in terms of their current levels of integration with the SDGs.
