ICLEI Developing Rating System for Communities

Joining forces with the U.S. Green Building Council and the Center for American Progress, ICLEI–Local Governments for Sustainability is developing the STAR Community Index. STAR will be a rating system designed to measure communities’ performance in three areas: environment, economy, and society.

Credits in the system may cover land use, transportation, green job development, education, and affordable housing, among other areas. ICLEI is currently staffing technical advisory committees and hopes to launch STAR in 2010. More information is available at
