About Global Footprint Network
 
Our mission is to promote a sustainable economy by advancing the Ecological Footprint, a measurement tool that makes the reality of planetary limits relevant to decision-makers.
 
 


Moving Beyond GDP

How can we move beyond measuring economic expansion to broader indicators of progress that assess whether countries are providing for human well-being in a meaningful and lasting way? This question is the focus of the Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress created by French President Nicolas Sarkozy and chaired by Nobel Prize winning-economists Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz of Columbia University and Professor Amartya Sen of Harvard.

 
---------------------


The Commission has recently issued a draft report of its findings. Among the indicators mentioned was the Ecological Footprint, marking an important milestone for incorporation of the Footprint and ecological limits into policy-making at the highest levels.
The organization has collected public comments on the draft and is expected to issue the final report later this year.
