Sustainability indicators, or environmental indicators, are tools that allow the visualisation of changes in complex environmental systems by expressing those changes in numerical form. Indicators play a key role in tracking progress towards meeting sustainability and environmental targets, including the increasingly urgent goal of a low-carbon future. The online Low-Carbon Indicators Toolkit, developed under the Regions for Sustainable Change (RSC) project, is a complex and comprehensive tool for stakeholders from European regions who need to work with low-carbon indicators in the policy-making process. This toolkit is designed to provide assistance in the complicated task of identifying, selecting, measuring and reporting on such indicators.
