About the Indicators Report

Sustainable San Mateo County has been tracking sustainability progress in the county since 1997 through its annual Indicators Report. This report provides fact-based information on sustainability indicators and local trends impacting San Mateo County’s economy, environment and social equity. Since its inception, the Indicators Report has been welcomed as a credible source of information by governments, businesses, civic groups and nonprofit organizations that use it to set goals, measure progress and prioritize resource allocation.

Propelled by the philosophy that “what gets measured, gets managed,” the report presents metrics, success stories and showcases positive changes that raise awareness of sustainability in the local cities and our county. In addition to measuring progress, the Indicators Report offers case studies of local governments and businesses, as well as data-driven insights and resources that help sustainability practitioners make sound decisions for the benefit of future generations.
