Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Plan
Issue a Report Card – Measuring Our Progress
In our review of the best practices of other state and municipality sustainability plans, we’ve found that public report cards are an effective tool in ensuring that the public, lawmakers and opinion leaders know how we are doing in implementing our plan.
We believe performance indicators are a crucial component of Hawai‘i 2050. A good indicator helps the public understand the current status of an issue, whether the situation around it is improving or worsening, and how far we are from success. Effective indicators are relevant, easy to understand, reliable and based on accessible data.
The details of this report card must be developed by the Council, but the core of it lies in the strategic actions and indicators set forth in this document. The report card will tell us how we measure up to this plan, and enable us to make adjustments according to what is working and what isn’t.
