Sustainability Indicators

Sustainability indicators are select data that help reflect social, economic and environmental health and that are tracked over time with a view to ascertaining trends and the state of sustainability.

The Fraser Basin Council began an indicators program in 2000, with a primary emphasis on sustainability of the Fraser Basin. Our goals are to:

  • increase public awareness and understanding about sustainability
  • identify critical issues and responses to improve progress
  • inform decisions and influence actions
  • advance sustainability.

FBC has published a series of Sustainability Snapshot reports on social, economic and environmental indicators — including Aboriginal/Non-Aboriginal Relations, Climate Change, Air Quality, Agriculture, Energy, Education, and more. Each report is supplemented by case examples and opportunities for action.

The reports are intended to raise awareness about the state of sustainability for diverse audiences in the Fraser Basin and BC. These include elected officials and staff in federal, provincial, local and First Nations governments, community and non-profit organizations, businesses, media, educators and the general public.

You’ll find all our reports in Resources (Indicators).

Our Vision

Social well-being supported by a vibrant economy and sustained by a healthy environment.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
