The US and Canada Green City Index, a research project conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by Siemens, seeks to measure and assess the environmental performance of 27 major US and Canadian cities across a range of criteria. The cities were picked independently rather than relying on requests from city governments to be included, in order to enhance the Index’s credibility and comparability.

This report presents the key findings and highlights from the Index, and is intended to provide stakeholders with a unique tool to help cities in the region learn from each other in order to better address the common environmental challenges they face. A panel of global experts in urban environmental sustainability advised the Economist Intelligence Unit in developing the methodology for the US and Canada Green City Index. The EIU would like to thank the members of the panel for their time and valuable insight.
