Global Footprint Network, an international nonprofit organization founded in 2003, envisions a future where all can thrive within the means of our one planet. We enable our vision through our mission: to help end ecological overshoot by making ecological limits central to decision-making. We offer metrics that are simple, meaningful, and scalable; actionable insights about natural resource consumption and capacity; and tools and analysis to guide informed decisions.
We all know that humans use A LOT of resources, some countries and individuals more than others. What if we all consumed the same amount? Could the world sustain us? These are the questions that GFN answers for us and makes the complex and intangible challenge of living sustainably on Earth simple and visually beautiful. — Ravi
