The indexes used by local, national, and international governments to
monitor progress toward sustainability do not adequately align with
their ethical priorities and have a limited ability to monitor and
promote sustainability. This book gives a theoretical and practical
demonstration of how ethics and technical considerations can aid the
development of sustainability indexes to overcome this division in the
literature and in aid sustainability initiatives. Measuring and Evaluating Sustainability develops and illustrates methods of linking technical and normative concerns during the development of sustainability indexes.
