Graham Environmental Sustainability Index

Data Driven Detroit (D3)   (Detroit)

February 2012

D3 is partnered with the Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute at the University of Michigan to establish the Detroit Sustainability Indicators Project, an initiative to measure the city’s sustainability based on environmental, economic and social factors. The two main goals of this project are: 1) gather and analyze data on sustainability issues and make this information available for public use and 2) create a sustainability index for Detroit that will drive informed decision-making and serve as a model for other urban areas pursuing sustainable redevelopment.
