Project Description

The City of Surrey is currently developing sustainability indicators to help measure progress on becoming a more sustainable City. The indicators and targets are a critical task from the Surrey Sustainability Charter, and will help operationalize and monitor the Charter's vision, goals and actions. To help develop the indicators and targets, the City brought together a community Task Force representing a variety of interests. From the work of this Task Force and involvement of many staff, a list of proposed indicators and targets was brought to City Council in December 2010 and approved. Subsequently, Surrey built a Sustainability Dashboard to share these metrics with the community. The Dashboard was launched in 2012 at www.surrey.ca/dashboard. The City uses the Dashboard for annual reporting on trends and progress towards its sustainability vision. The Dashboard uses sustainability themes to organize the information, with a total of 78 metrics reported on in 2013; complementary sustainability maps are also drawn from the City's extensive GIS system.
