Measuring Sustainability Outcomes: Easier Said than Done?

Northeast APA Sustainability Network/Planners Webcast Series Webinar

Hosted by: APA’s Planners Webcast Series, the Upstate NY APA Chapter, and the Northeast APA Regional Sustainability Network.

Description:
As communities look to measure sustainability in a world of proliferating indicators and rating systems, planners find that some metrics are easier to measure – and manage – than others. Dive deeper into the topic of sustainability metrics with speakers from Audubon International, STAR Communities, New York State, and SUNY Binghamton, who will share real world examples and recommendations for measuring sustainability. Taking a few categories of sustainability indicators to focus the discussion, the panel will provide an in-depth look at how to collect and use these measures, and will highlight metrics and measures needing further inquiry and improvement.
