Houston Sustainability Indicators (HSI)


The Houston Sustainability Indicators (HSI) project is a long-range effort by the Shell Center for Sustainability to assist with the measurement and characterization of sustainability in Houston. This work is done through an Indicator Set. Metrics for the chosen indicators were defined and are measured based on literature review; expert and advisory consultation; and data availability.
