Urban Sustainability Assessment and Rating Tools Workshop

This workshop examines a new class of sustainability assessment and rating tools that have emerged to gauge equity, resiliency, and resource efficiency at urban scales, from neighborhoods up to entire cities. Examples include APA Sustaining Places, STAR Community, 2030 Districts, and Living Community

Challenge. These and other tools are explored according to topical scope, user skills, cost, and application procedure. Participants learn how to use the tools to leverage expert knowledge, improve decision-making, and accelerate progress toward sustainability goals. The workshop includes interviews with tool providers and experienced users, and a review of trends and prospects in this rapidly evolving arena, including real-time performance measurement at urban scales.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will understand the value of urban sustainability assessment and rating, recognize the qualities of assessment and rating tools, be aware of available tools, and know how to select a best-fit tool.
