Advances in urban sustainability have recently been made through transdisciplinary collaborations among researchers, decision-makers and stakeholders. However, these advances have limited transferability due to the inherent uniqueness of the city in which they originated. This paper proposes a core/common set of metrics to assess ecosystem services. The framework contributes to the advancement of SDG 11.3 to enhance inclusive and sustainable urbanization and capacity for participatory, integrated and sustainable human settlement planning and management.
Focused on a Green Future
Italy's leading petrochemical producer, Versalis has taken a fundamental shift in its strategy and direction, to renew its focus on innovation and green chemistry, providing opportunities for growth. This is the ICIS/Versalis supplement about green and bio-based chemicals and sustainabliity with videos embedded. Green chemistry fits in with SDG 9 Industry Innovation and SDG 7 Affordable Clean Energy.
This journal article addresses goals 7, 11, 12 and 15 by discussing how increased demand for biomass for bioenergy purposes may lead to a continued conversion of valuable habitats into productive lands and to intensification, which both have negative effects on biodiversity.
Research since 2000 has clearly shown the links between transport disadvantage, poverty, and economic and social exclusion. This paper reflects on the extent to which a social exclusion approach to research on transport disadvantage has been successful in opening up new avenues of research enquiry and/or identifying new theoretical perspectives and/or methodological approaches. It aligns with and shows the connections between SDGs 1, 10 and 11.

With the global urban population now exceeding 50 percent, the inhabitants of cities are recognized as a major driver of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This paper describes the methodology and data used to determine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions attributable to ten cities or city-regions. Identifying cities with better per capita performance than others may help to guide climate change policies and contribute to SDG 13.3 to improve education, awareness and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation and adaption.
