From the Editor
Last November 12th, FEEM officially presented the improved version of its perspective Sustainability Index. It required two years of work by a team of modellers and statisticians, it coupled raw data gathering, simulations and elicitation of experts opinions. Is it possible or even legitimate to compress the multi dimensional concept of sustainability in one figure? We believe so if the final aim is, in full transparency, to identify and quantify non trivial relations across social, economic, and environmental drivers and to show the consequences of policy decisions on each of them. More on this in this issue's editor's choice.
