Londonís Quality of Life Indicators 2012 Report

Source: London Sustainable Development Commission (UK)

From the Introduction:

In 2012, sustainable development matters more than ever in London. Recent events – such as the global economic downturn and the riots of 2011 – combined with longer-term issues – including climate change, increasing resource scarcity, over consumption and population growth – threaten to conspire to create a ‘perfect storm’ of quality of life challenges for the city.

Sustainable development offers an integrated economic, social and environmental framework for creating a London not only resilient to these challenges, but one that secures quality of life now and for its future citizens.

What’s more, as a global city, London is well positioned to act as a leader of sustainable urban living, demonstrating how a world city can succeed economically and socially in ways that enhance and protect the environment.

The purpose of this report is to provide a snapshot of London’s quality of life and to identify the sustainability issues London faces. It provides baseline data that will inform the Commission’s future work programme and advice to the Mayor.
