|Accounting for sustainability: developing an integrated approach for sustainability assessments|
This is a cross-disciplinary project involving social science and computer science. It aims to develop a new approach to sustainability in our cities and organizations.
Current approaches with a focus on reporting against a proliferation of indicator sets, often result in cities and organizations losing sight of the underlying sustainability goals, and in particular the local opportunities and issues. This project will develop a new approach to defining sustainability in locally meaningful terms, while at the same time linking this to global indicators. A leading edge software system will be developed to provide the technological support to assist cities and organizations in management of their sustainability goals.
Funding provider and partners: Australian Research Council with Fuji Xerox, Cambridge International College, City of Melbourne, Common Ground Publishing, Augusta Systems, and Microsoft.
