Government, environmental, and business leaders around the world use our National Footprint Accounts data to better manage their country’s limited resources, reduce economic risk, and improve human well-being. We make this data available for free so that as many people as possible can use it to help create a more sustainable future. Foundations and individual donors fund our work.

This year, you can conclude 2016 with a special nod to your favorite country by symbolically “adopting” its Footprint account. Here’s how it works: On the map below, click on a country that is near and dear to you – your homeland or your favorite vacation destination or that memorable romantic place – and make a donation to support our Footprint calculations for that country.* Your donation may cover the total or partial cost of calculating a country’s Footprint, your choice!

ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT

The Ecological Footprint measures how much demand human consumption places on the biosphere. It is measured in standard units called global hectares.
