Ecological Footprint Method
The Global Footprint or Ecological Footprint methodology provides a universal methodology for calculating the impact of nations, states, towns and even individuals using comparative metrics of either:
- The number of hectares of land one needs to support their lifestyle and activities.
- The number of Earths required to support the lifestyles and activities of an individual, town, state or country if all people consumed at the same rate.
