Sustainability Indicators

The Province of Manitoba has adopted sustainability indicators to track and provide Manitobans with information on important sustainability issues and trends.  The indicators are based on recommendations from the Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development.

Sustainability indicators are organized into a framework of three dimensions – natural environment, economy and social well-being. 

  • Natural environment indicator categories include: biodiversity and habitat conservation, fish, forests, air, water and climate change.

  • Economic indicator categories include: economic performance, agricultural viability, mining, energy efficiency and conservation, consumption and waste management, employment and education.

  • Social well-being indicator categories include: demographics, equity and rights, community and culture, governance, health and justice.
