Global Footprint Network is an international think tank working to advance sustainability through use of the Ecological Footprint, a resource accounting tool that measures how much nature we have, and how much we use. This tool is unique in making overshoot measurable – through detailed resource accounts for nations, cities and individuals. By working with governments, investors and opinion leaders we demonstrate the advantages of making ecological limits central to decision-making.

During our ten-year history, we’ve engaged with 57 national governments on six continents with one overarching goal: that all people live well, within the means of one planet.
