Global Cities Index/Study






+61 8 6375 9100

The project featured a global study that benchmarked 23 cities and their preparedness for future urbanisation.

Specifically, the study explored how cities would respond to a future shaped by increasing population, densification, digital disruption, customer-driven mobility solutions and a changing climate.

Prior to joining BGER, a member of our ESG Advisory team served as Project Director for this study, which included developing the methodology and co-ordinating more than 100 subject matter specialists who lived and worked in the respective cities, to deploy the methodology which included reviewing:

  • Amenities (e.g. investment in parks and public spaces, street space for pedestrians and cyclists, and provisions for making cities more liveable);
  • Mobility (e.g. movement of people and goods being shaped by converging technological and social trends, including car and ride-sharing, electric vehicles (EVs) and autonomous vehicles, global connectivity, and logistics and productivity for trade);
  • Technology (e.g. digital transformation of cities to create smart cities); and,
  • Urban systems (e.g. transitioning to sustainable power generation and distribution, water treatment and waste management).

This global study was launched via industry forums in capital cities around the world.
