2009 Sustainable Cities index


This year's league tables showing the environmental sustainability of Britain's 20 biggest cities have just been released by think tank Forum for the Future, in a detailed report that is freely available online. It measures 13 indicators of environmental performance, quality of life and how well prepared the cities are for the future. The results make for interesting reading, with Newcastle consolidating its improvements in recent years to top the table this year. Glasgow, meanwhile, has sunk to 19th position, just above bottom of the table Hull.
