Recently, the RC won many international awards in development under the United Nation Development Program (UNDP) which is considered an indicator for positive progress in sustainability. The aim of this paper is to explore twelve sustainability indicators implemented at RCY. The proposed sustainability indicators were contributed by nine divisions. The methodology in selecting indicators in terms of measurable success was crafted through the knowledge of local and international organizations such as UNDP, European Union (EU) and Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
