Measuring Sustainability Report

Measuring sustainability Report CoverThe City of Pickering is in the midst of a transformation from a suburban community to a sustainable city. The Measuring Sustainability Report sets a baseline that will allow the City to track this transformation over time.

The 2012 Report measures 55 indicators of sustainability.

The indicators are grouped into five sections:

  1. Healthy Environment
  2. Healthy Economy
  3. Healthy Society
  4. Responsible Development
  5. Responsible Consumption

At the end of each section, website links and related information is included on what you and your family can do to live more sustainable and help make Pickering a more sustainable city.

Consistent with our sustainability objectives, only a limited number of copies were printed. The report is also for loan through the Pickering Public Library.

What's next?

In 2016 the City started working on an update to the report. A community survey was conducted, data collected, and a technical assessment was done to assess each indicator. An updated report will be issued in 2017.

If you have any questions or to request a print copy, please contact the Coordinator, Sustainability.
