Ecological footprinting – beyond carbon

There's a lot of talk about measuring carbon, but measuring sustainability means looking more broadly at where consumption exceeds environmental limits. An ecological footprint is a comprehensive indicator of environmental impact, it includes carbon emissions but goes further and looks at land required and impact on renewable resources. The ecological footprint links consumption to the Earth's carrying capacity.

We are world leaders in ecological footprinting, having used the methodology since 1997. The core textbook on footprinting, 'Sharing Nature's Interest', was co-written by our directors Craig Simmons and Nicky Chambers, with Mathis Wackernagel. Best Foot Forward is a founding and active member of the Global Footprint Network, and we have worked with the European Commission to encourage states to adopt the ecological footprint indicator.
