The LSDC’s fourth Quality of Life Indicators report was launched at City Hall on 30th January 2013. The report provides a snapshot of London’s quality of life and identifies the sustainability issues London faces. The indicator set encompasses 33 headline indicators across the environmental, social and economic spheres. It provides baseline data that will inform the Commission’s future work programme and advice to the Mayor.
The Mayor wants London to be the best big city in the world. The London Sustainable Development Commission supports this aspiration and believes that as part of being ‘best’ we should work to make London the benchmark for sustainable cities by 2020. To improve our chances of achieving this we need first to know what this would mean in economic, environmental and social terms; where we currently stand; and then measure progress against these issues.
The LSDC produced the first Quality of Life Indicators Report in 2004 and subsequent reports were produced in 2005 and 2009. The previous reports can be found on the LSDC website.
