Every local government in the Netherlands has the ambition to be more sustainable in the future. But how can you measure sustainability on this scale?

The municipality of Haarlemmermeer is the first Dutch local government to have a certified sustainability monitor. As the designer of the system, Fonz Dekkers will elaborate on how he reduced this complex system to a set of 19 critical performance indicators and how these can be used for policymaking.

Fonz Dekkers, site coordinator for ASU Global Sustainability Solutions Center at the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer, is a Dutch consultant in the field of sustainability and renewable energy. He has been involved with policy and area development for the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer since 2012.

Co-sponsored by the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives.
