Public Comment Period Open on New Footprint Standards

07/15/2010 06:56 PM

The Ecological Footprint Standards Committee is inviting public comment on its proposed 2009 Ecological Footprint Standards. The standards are designed to ensure that Ecological Footprint assessments are produced consistently and according to community-proposed best-practices. These new methodological standards focus on Ecological Footprint studies for organizations and products. They were created over the past six months by the Ecological Footprint Standards Committee and the Standards Working Group.

The Committee’s work follows the Charter for Global Footprint Network Committees and the guidelines set forth by the International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labeling Alliance (ISEAL).

We welcome business leaders and other interested parties to review the proposed standards and provide their feedback. Click here to review and comment on the document. If you have any questions related to the 2009 Ecological Footprint Standards, please contact Brad Ewing at or +1-510-839-8879 x 325.
