The Footprint calculator offers an interactive, fun way for people to explore and reduce their Footprint. Built in partnership with Free Range Studios, the calculator received generous support from EPA Victoria, the Foundation for a Global Community, the City of Calgary, and the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund. The calculator is based on data from Global Footprint Network's National Footprint Accounts.

Global Footprint Network has built 17 versions of the calculator in nearly a dozen languages in order to serve as many people globally as possible.

Global Footprint Network invites corporate, government and NGO partners to help launch the next mobile-version of the calculator worldwide. The calculator can be customized for specific organizations and geographical areas, and upcoming enhancements will include social networking opportunities and interactive features.
