On 14 September 2009, the Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress presented its report to the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, at a conference held at the Sorbonne in Paris. The Commission recommended broadening the scope of traditional measures for economic performance to include measures of quality of life, inequalities and well-being, as well as better taking into account sustainability and environmental conditions.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has advocated the need to develop new measures of people’s well-being and societal progress for almost ten years and has recently launched its Better Life Initiative.

Two years after the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi Commission’s recommendations, the French National Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE), the French Ministry for the Economy, Finance and Industry and the OECD, organised a conference to take stock of current initiatives and reflections at national and international levels to measure progress and sustainability.


The conference took place on the 12 October 2011 and was opened by Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing, Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General and Nobel prize winner in economics, Joseph E. Stiglitz. François Baroin, Minister for the Economy, Finance and Industry, also provided a keynote address at the end of the day.


The conference brought together statisticians and policy makers.
