This report, produced by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) as part of its Sustainable Mobility Project 2.0, sets out the results of a piece of work to develop a comprehensive set of sustainable mobility indicators for cities.

It is based on a collaboration with six pilot cities:  Bangkok (Thailand), Campinas (Brazil), Chengdu (China), Hamburg (Germany), Indore (India) and Lisbon (Portugal).

The indicators are described with SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time-based) methodologies that will allow cities to perform a standardised evaluation of their mobility system.

They will also allow them to understand the evolution of the system over time, and measure the improvements resulting from the implementation of new mobility practices or policies. 

If repeated over time this exercise will reveal the measures impacting the most efficiently on specific indicators and thus allow other cities to select the best measures in the context of a targeted action.
