Prosperity beyond profit

The promise of prosperity is why the majority of people live in cities. But we know that sustainable cities are better at delivering on this promise than others. And we can also see that financial profits alone do not guarantee prosperity for the masses.

The Arcadis Sustainable Cities Index 2022

In the 5th edition of the Arcadis Sustainable Cities Index, we conduct our most comprehensive and in-depth analysis of urban sustainability and how it is the key to unlocking prosperity in cities and improving quality of life.

The Arcadis Sustainable Cities Index 2022 ranks 100 of the world’s cities based on 51 metrics, across 26 indicator themes, arrayed under the three pillars of sustainability: planet, people, and profit.

Preview the results below and explore the 20 cities at the top of the overall index, as well as the top-ranking cities across the three individual pillars.
