Urban Sustainability Management
The ISO 37101 urban and community sustainability management system standard aims to advance sustainability at the urban and community levels by providing:
- a globally recognised framework based on the 6 purposes of sustainability and the 12 principal areas for community action;
- an holistic approach to integrate buildings, infrastructure and urban projects so as to to optimise sustainability performance and support essential management processes.
Recent events at which USM was presented included:
Advanced metrics and indicators form the basis for decision making. The USM Platform at USMP.online allows those active within an ISO 37101-based USM system to create project logbooks and use management tools to develop strategies and carry out baseline reviews.
Information about the inventories of declarations and the sets of indicators corresponding to different perspectives that can be used for USM logbooks is kept at 37101.wiki together with updated guidance and inventories of management tools that can be used in implementing ISO 37101.
