Ecological footprint - What is the ecological footprint definition?

Your ecological footprint refers to how much of planet earth’s limited resources that can be attributed to your lifestyle. The Ecological Footprint of a person is calculated summarising the total use of biologically productive space. That includes carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases with a climate impact. But it also includes the use of cropland to grow food, or forest to produce timber, use of fresh water etc.

With ClimateHero ecological footprint calculator you can test and check how large your eco footprint is, when it comes to climate impact, i.e. how much carbon emissions (CO2) you generate. The quiz is based on a few simple questions about ecological lifestyle. For example, the test will track and estimate the ecological footprint of flying, driving cars, meat consumption and energy.
