Life leaves its mark. Our actions, every product we consume, our means of transportation - it all requires resources and energy and causes waste and emissions.
The ecological footprint
The ecological footprint shows how much of the earth's resources we require. It calculates how many hectares of land are needed to compensate the resources and means of waste removal required by an individual, a company, or an entire country. Our aim should be to keep this land as small as possible and to give back to planet earth what we have taken. At the moment, we would need the capacities and resources of three earths to sustain mankind's lifestyle.
Recognise. Reduce. Compensate.
Our footprint calculator calculates your share of negative influence on the environment. Aside from offering ideas on minimising the emission of pollutants, the footprint calculator also allows you to compensate for a part of your ecological footprint.
Give and take
For every square meter of your ecological footprint, we will replant a piece of earth within our reforestation projects in Germany and Nicaragua. Thereby allowing you to compensate for your pollutant emission and preserve our planet's natural resources.
We vigorously pursue the goal of reducing and compensating the ecological footprint by supporting companies or events in becoming CO2-neutral. In doing so, we minimise the damaging effect on our environment.
