Ecological Footprint - The Most Important Accounting Tool For The Planet?
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
Abstract:This project attempts to make information on our ecological footprint readily available to the public by proposing a “footprint meter”, a “footprint accounting system” and by providing example calculations for our footprint for items such as a cheeseburger. A simulated model of the footprint meter showing the effect of household energy use is developed. Footprints were estimated for 12 households through a survey.
