Environmental Performance Measurement Project, Yale University

Data Center Description
The Environmental Performance Measurement Project aims to shift environmental
decision-making to firmer analytic foundations using environmental indicators
and statistics. In collaboration with the Center for International Earth
Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University, and the World
Economic Forum, the project produces a periodically updated Environmental
Sustainability Index (ESI). The ESI is a composite index tracking a diverse set
of socioeconomic, environmental, and institutional indicators that characterize
and influence environmental sustainability at the national scale. An
Environmental Performance Index focusing on assessing key environmental policy
outcomes using trend analysis and performance targets is under development.
