Sustainability Management Instruments
Sustainability Management supports local governments to develop and apply innovative management instruments with the goal of achieving sustainability.

Sustainable cities can improve the quality of life for their citizens and at the same time take responsibility to protect global common goods and natural resources. Good governance towards sustainable development requires permanent, cyclic management mechanisms and instruments (e.g. systems and tools) in municipal management aimed at effective target setting, monitoring, reporting, and continual improvement. The aim is to anchor sustainability principles within all municipal decision-making.

ICLEI's Sustainability Management Program works in close collaboration with cities and towns as well as institutional and research partners to develop and pilot instruments that support cities in their transition toward becoming eco-efficient and sustainable. We strive to support capacity building for local governments to introduce and apply sustainability management.
