    À partir d'une sélection de 20 indicateurs de développement durable (DD), nous construisons deux indicateurs composites (IC) qui synthétisent respectivement les dimensions environnementales et socio-économiques du DD. Nous procédons ensuite à l'application des IC aux 25 plus grandes municipalités du Québec selon différents scénarios de classement. Nous obtenons deux principaux résultats. Premièrement, nous démontrons que les municipalités les plus durables ne sont pas nécessairement celles ayant de bonnes performances environnementales. Deuxièmement, nous démontrons qu'en moyenne : i) les plus grandes villes en termes de population obtiennent de bons scores environnementaux » et de mauvais scores socio-économiques et ii) les municipalités plus petites obtiennent de mauvais scores environnementaux qui sont compensés par des scores socio-économiques plus élevés. Nous terminons l'étude en présentant une analyse-graphique utilisant les diagrammes en radar afin d'identifier les principaux facteurs qui influencent chacun des IC.
