Sustainability Dashboard

The City Council has established ambitious environmental goals for Hayward. The Sustainability Dashboard shows how we are doing and how much further we have to go.

Hayward staff is tracking approximately fifty environmental metrics to measure our progress. The Sustainability Dashboard displays the six priority metrics for the Hayward community. See real-time energy performance data for Hayward City Hall.

We love data and we need your help. The City tracks data on each of its goals. Unfortunately, City staff doesn’t have the resources to track everything. If you are a teacher, student, or volunteer who loves data, check out our data wish list below.
