A person’s Ecological Footprint is a complex sustainability indicator that answers a simple question: How much of the Earth’s resources does your lifestyle require?
According to Redefining Progress’ latest Footprint Analysis, humanity is exceeding its ecological limits by 39%. Or, put another way, we would need to have over 1/3 more than the present biocapacity of Earth to maintain the same level of prosperity for future generations.
