Ecological Footprint

thinkstep helps you to determine, analyze, reduce and offset both product ecological footprints and corporate ecological footprints.

Ecological Footprint analysis is the key

Climate change is one of the major challenges facing the global population and the natural environment. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions released into the atmosphere in ever rapidly growing volumes are recognised to be responsible for this change. 

Ecological Footprint quantification analysis and reduction are key to preventing this change by, for example, enhancing energy efficiency, mitigating carbon emissions by means of green energy and then compensating for remaining GHG emissions by investing in carbon offsets, with a final goal of being carbon neutral.

What is an Ecological Footprint?

An Ecological Footprint measures the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by a person, organisation, event or product.

Carbon Footprint (CF) – also named Carbon profile - is the overall amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (e.g. methane, laughing gas, etc.) associated with a product, along its supply-chain and sometimes including from use and end-of-life recovery and disposal.

Carbon Footprint quantification analysis and reduction are key to preventing this change by, for example, enhancing energy efficiency, mitigating carbon emissions by means of green energy and then compensating for remaining GHG emissions by investing in carbon offsets, with a final goal of being carbon neutral.

Our GaBi Software allows all the GHG emissions of your product to be captured in a systematic and transparent way. Primary data specific to your product can then be incorporated into your analyses and combined with secondary data on GHG emissions available from the GaBi database.
