Abstract

The United States experience with sustainable development is contrasted with the roots and current practices of the British and Australian approaches. This research identifies the convergence and divergence of sustainable development policies in London, Sydney and New York City, the lexicon of sustainable development tools and practices and the complex interplay of federal, state and local legislation and actions. Each city has launched its own version of a comprehensive sustainability plan in the last decade, setting ambitious goals to be achieved by 2025 or 2030, with important milestones established along the way.
