About the 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.
ISA is a leader in physical "input-output" analysis and has applied this resource
accounting tool to Ecological Footprinting. Our collaboration with ISA supports our
mission to develop the best tools and to harmonize methodologies. Our first project
together has been to calculate the Ecological Footprint of the State of Victoria,
Australia, a project that has allowed us to examine the two approaches and explore
routes to methodology standardization.
