  3. 3. What is unique about the Telos monitor? Ø- Ecological, social and economic aspects are included; Ø- All indicator values are assessed using a uniform sustainability framework expressing scores as % of sustainability goal achievement (distance to target); Ø- First study based on such a wide variety and large number of indicators (~100); Ø- First study benchmarking so many EU cities (114), with a wide variety of sizes (50.000 till >2 million inhabitants) and typologies, spread all over Europe; Ø- The database allows for studying cross-sectoral relationships.

  14. 14. Conclusions 1. Highest sustainability scores in Espoo, Stockholm & Munich 2. Sustainability scores of EU cities vary widely (North-South) 3. Population size, demographic dynamics, geographical region, typology (e.g. agricultural, industrial) and competitiveness (e.g. labor productivity) were found to be important determinants of urban sustainability performance. 4. Espoo-Helsinki-Vantaa is a top sustainability region in the world (others are Copenhagen, Stockholm, Munich) 5. Recycle economy, energy transition, air quality and arts&culture 6. It has to pioneer further advancements 7. This requires a more detailed analysis of interactions within the region to detect developmental chances See interactive website www.sustainablecitiesbenchmark.eu Espoo, 23-May-16
