Measuring our impact
Six snapshots of our impact
Here is a snapshot of our contributions to an equitable, prosperous, climate-smart future via six key “indicators.” Since 2019, we have measured indicators across our projects to quantify and track our progress towards our vision and goals. You can explore this data in detail in our most recent Indicators Report and read below about our efforts to evolve our measurement practices to include more meaningful indicators of equity, justice, resilience, and well-being.

Measuring equitable outcomes
We are committed to centering racial equity in our partnerships and projects, and within our organization. This ongoing work is described in detail at Equity at Ecotrust.
As our work evolves, we are also evolving our measurement methods and practices to include more meaningful indicators of equity, justice, resilience, and well-being. Our goal is to more faithfully reflect our and our partners’ progress toward the world we seek to co-create and inhabit, and to share this information with our community with clarity and specificity.
