Footprint for Business

Businesses that look ahead and actively manage their ecological risks and opportunities can gain a strong competitive advantage.

The Ecological Footprint is being used to help corporations improve their market foresight, set strategic direction, manage performance and communicate their strengths.

By providing a common unit, the Footprint helps business to establish benchmarks, set quantitative targets and evaluate alternatives for future activities. The Footprint is compatible with all scales of company operations, and provides both aggregated and detailed results.

Ecological Footprint analysis reveals where regions, industrial sectors and companies will face increasing limits in resources such as energy, forest, croplands, pastures and fisheries. It also helps identify strategies that will succeed in a resource-constrained world, including products and services that will be most needed in the future.
