This is de Sustainable City Matrix (SCM) developed by the Institute of Smart Cities (ISC) of the Public University of Navarra (UPNA) during the EU funded STARDUST Project, looking for assessing European Cities’ plans and strategies to find their global sustainability label taking into account six different areas, in order to analyse the results and improve their policies on each, looking for more sustainable environments. Before starting to fill in the matrix, a general review of the 18 indicators should be taken, as well as an examination of the appendix describing the sub-sections related to those indicators. In this way, the user not only gets acquainted with the matrix but also can take notes about the information required by the tool, and that must be collected in advance. In opinion of the developers of the SCM, the more time- consuming activity for dealing with the matrix is collecting the data related to the indicators; fulfilling the matrix itself (having beforehand corresponding information) is similar to feeding a spreadsheet.

We recommend to follow this steps:

1- To read the User manual (link)

2- To compile the required information from different municipal managers.

3- Finally, complete this on-line matrix.

Some initial notes:

All the topics are questions, and the answers must be chosen from the dropdown below. Some answers are referred to a specific number, or in an implementation range. When some answer is in %, is understood that (i.e.) 10% to 20% is "from 10,01% until 20%", and 20%- 30% is "from 20,01% to 30%" and so on.

Other answers could be referred to the scale of the initiative implementation.
