Ecological Footprint Calculator:
Behind the questions
This breakdown of the 15 questions the environment agency uses to calculate
the overall ecological footprint of an individual gives some idea of
the reason each of the questions are posed.
It is by no means exhaustive but rather provides an insight in to some
of the key environmental sustainability issues underlying each question
illustrating individual choices are far from inconsequential.
This section does not attempt to discuss the methodology and equations
used to calculate the footprint.
