Our Offerings

We partner with clients to provide the following services:

We've learned from decades of communicating about sustainability.

We've helped government and corporate clients achieve their goals.

Customized Calculators

Organizations sponsor our existing Footprint Calculator or adapt it for their purposes. The calculator allows organizations to build a community, recruit members, and stay engaged with users.

Examples include: white labeling, adjusting the solutions section, and integrating other web products or campaigns.

Who we’ve worked with: the Ecological Footprint of Portuguese Municipalities, DestiMED Footprint of ecotourism itineraries, and WWF are some organizations that have adapted our calculator.

Detailed Footprint Data

Beyond the results available under a Creative Commons license on data.footprintnetwork.org, the National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts provide detailed insights into the resource flow of countries. Additional results can be licensed.

Environmentally-extended Multi-Regional Input Output assessments: we offer trade analyses, sector assessments, and “Consumption Land-Use Matrices” (CLUMs) based on three years 2004, 2007 and 2011. CLUMs show how much of the overall Footprint is attributed to various consumption categories. They are essential components for regional and city assessments.

Nowcasted Data: Based on newer data, where available, and extrapolations, where not available, we nowcast national results to the present.

Who we’ve worked with: Financial institutions (such as Pictet Bank), governments (such as the government of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) and policy organizations (such as the European Environment Agency) have used specialized data for their risk and sustainability assessments.

Sustainability Campaigns

Through the years, we have gained a lot of experience about what makes sustainability campaigns successful and what does not. Including campaigns within companies to shift their sustainability approach. We love to support clients in designing and executing campaigns that advance sustainability.

Examples include: Country Overshoot Days (such as French and German Overshoot Day), Earth Overshoot Day partnerships, and Country campaigns (Swiss referendum).

Who we’ve worked with: WWF France, GermanWatch, and corporate partners such as Schneider Electric, PharmaCielo, BC Hydro, and others.

Sustainability Assessments

Rather than starting with indicators or data, we ask: “what do you need to know in order to operate your entity safely and effectively?” We work with clients to develop effective measurement approaches that strengthen their decision-making, including for companies.
