B. (Bàrbara), Sureda, José Juan de Felipe Blanch, Ivonne Cruz


The present work has the aim to present the structure and main objectives of the elaboration of the 2006 Sustainability Report for Catalonia. It is a description and evaluation of the present trends and pressing situations relevant for sustainable development in Catalonia, until 2006. The report has been developed by the research group on “Sustainability Measurement and Modeling” of the UNESCO Chair in Sustainability at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
Regional (Catalan) national (Spanish) and European data bases have been used. The selected indicators have been classified in four wider groups: environmental, social, economic and institutional. A total of 465 variables and indicators were proposed by a group of experts through an open-ended process and have been analyzed. As a result, a total of 262 were finally chosen. Besides conducting the follow-up of a series of indicators, the report evaluates the goals achieved by the Catalan society towards sustainability from a systemic perspective.
