Global Footprint Network annual report

Annual Reports, Business

The world’s population demands the resources of 1.5 earths annually; if everyone lived like the United States, it would be 5 earths. Global Footprint Network is a think-tank and team of “ecological accountants” measuring human pressure on the planet; its findings are used to inform policy decisions in an effort to demand less of the earth, protect its assets and live within the means of one planet. The organization’s data is presented in this annual report designed by San Francisco’s Bob Dinetz Design. Instead of focusing on a single issue as the problem, Global Footprint Network views climate change and other alarming crises like water shortages, overgrazing, erosion, the rapid extinction of species, deforestation, reduced cropland productivity and the collapse of fisheries, as symptoms of a much larger condition: Humanity is simply demanding too much of this planet.
