Sustainable Trade Index
The Hinrich Foundation commissioned The Economist Intelligence Unit to build the Sustainable Trade Index to measure the capacity of 20 economies to participate in the international trading system in a manner that supports long term sustainable development.
The Index uses 24 indicators to measure 19 economies in Asia and the U.S. across the three recognized pillars of sustainability: economic growth, social capital, and environmental protection. The Index measures the readiness of each economy to participate in global trade in a way that creates sustainable growth and attracts foreign direct investment, and funding and support from multilateral development agencies.
