Urban sustainability index response.

Urban sustainability index is designed as a new metric, which aims to measure how well a particular city is implementing sustainable practices in different areas of urban living.

Calculating urban sustainability index includes 5 categories, among which are:

  1. Basic needs, that includes access to drinkable eater, healthcare, education, etc.
  2. Resource efficiency, affected by power and water consumption, as well as percentage of waste recycled.
  3. Commitment to future sustainability, which include creation of green jobs and investments in green energy.

Overall, I think that creating of single measure for sustainability index is achievable if and only if all interested markets provide timely data, on which a successful regression analysis can be performed in order to determine which factors affects performance.
