Transcript of Footprint
The ecological footprint is a measure of human demand on the Earth's ecosystems. It is a standardized measure of demand for natural capital that may be contrasted with the planet's ecological capacity to regenerate
(Ewing et. al- Global Footprint Network)
Environmental Footprints 2004
A carbon footprint measures the total Greenhouse Gas emissions caused directly or indirectly by a person, organization, event or product.
Different Carbon Footprints
Organizational Carbon Footprint
Value Chain Carbon Footprint
Product Carbon Footprint
Significant Contribution of GHG
A carbon footprint considers all six of the Kyoto Protocol GHG: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrous oxide (N2O), Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).
The CO2 equivalent (CO2e) allows comparison with other GHG on a like-for-like basis relative to one unit of CO2. CO2e is calculated by multiplying the emissions of each of the six GHG by its 100 year GWP.
World Water Footprint
WWF Living Planet map of ecological footprints worldwide
An accounting system for bio-capacity that tracks how much bio-capacity there is, and how much bio-capacity people use
Distribution of Different Items amongst Groups (burger, chocolate, jelly, tea, coffee, fish etc)
Mentioning all the ecological footprints (ecosystems involved) for the production or growth of the
Group Formation assigning different departments of the Industry (e.g. transportation department, ware house, engineering department, production unit etc)
The identification of carbon emissions from all the individual tasks or production processes happening in each department
World's Carbon Footprints
The water footprint of an individual, community or business is defined as the total volume of freshwater used to produce the goods and services consumed by the individual or community or produced by the business
