National Accounts Committee
The National Accounts Committee oversees scientific review procedures and standards for Footprint calculations and supports continual improvement of the scientific basis of the National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts. These accounts provide the conversion factors and calculations necessary to translate quantities of resources used into the bioproductive land or sea area required to generate these resources. These conversion factors serve as the reference data for Footprint applications at all scales.
