Our Environment - Performance Indicators
Our Environment: The City of Saskatoon’s 2014 Environmental Leadership Report established a baseline of information indicating the health of our environment and what the City of Saskatoon is doing to maintain and improve it. The online version of the report provides the most recent information on indicators related to the categories of Land, Air, Water and Waste - explore the indicators by clicking the 'View Details' boxes below.
Maintaining a high quality of life where the citizens of Saskatoon can live and grow in harmony with nature requires us to work together and invest in what matters. But what does matter to the community? What are the environmental attitudes and behaviours, perceived barriers to taking environmental actions, and perceptions of the local government's environmental performance? The City required a better understanding of these aspects, and recently completed surveys with both the residential and Institutional, Commercial and Industrial (ICI) sectors to help answer these important questions. Results of the surveys are available in the following reports:
Land indicators include: Ecological Footprint, New Development Investment, Protected Lands, Bird Population Count and Community Gardens.
Air indicators include: Corporate GHG Emissions, Community GHG Emissions, Transportation Choices, Air Quality and Corporate (local government) Alternative Energy Projects.
Water indicators include: Water Quality, Water Consumption and Maximum Daily Demand for Water.
Waste indicators include: Landfilled Waste, Waste Diversion, and Total Waste Disposal and Diversion.
