The paper proposes an evaluation framework for comparing empirically the performance of Norman EPCIs in terms of sustainable development. The concept of sustainability is based on six dimensions: environment and natural resources, energy transition, sustainable mobility, economic dynamism, social cohesion and solidarity, and governance and citizenship. Considering a wide range of variables, we build aggregate composite indexes for each dimension of sustainable development. We use cartographical support to compare the performances of EPCIs in each of the six dimensions. Then a cluster analysis classifies Norman EPCIs and explores similarities and dissimilarities with respect to the six components of the sustainable development. The results highlight significant disparities between EPCIs regardless of the dimension considered. Six profiles of sustainable development are distinguished. Finally, the findings make it possible to identify the strengths and weaknesses of Norman EPCIs in implementation of sustainable development.
