Personal Ecological Footprint Calculator

Personal Ecological Footprint Calculator

A personal ecological footprint (PEF) is a quantitative measurement of how much biologically productive land and water are required to support an individual lifestyle. It includes areas to produce food and resources plus areas required to recycle the waste generated by an individual. It is measured in global hectares. Calculate your PEF based on the Discovery Education guidelines.

At present, the total biologically productive area in the world is approximately 12 billion hectares (increasing trend). However, the biocapacity of our planet is 1.6 global hectares per person (a constant trend due to population growth). Try to minimize your personal ecological footprint by taking initiatives, if your value is greater than 1.6 global hectares.
