Ivo Knoepfel joins the board of Global Footprint Network
onValues is stepping up its engagement in support of initiatives that contribute to understanding planetary boundaries and assessing their relevance for financial and investment decisions. In this context, our founder was recently invited to join the board of Global Footprint Network. The Network is famous for its comprehensive set of Ecological Footprint metrics and related advocacy. The Ecological Footprint continues to be the only metric that holistically compares human demand on nature against nature’s capacity to regenerate. It is based on simple, straightforward accounting – not on arbitrary scoring. Since its inception, Global Footprint Network has calculated Footprints of countries for each year that UN data has been available. Its engagement reach includes:
- global campaigns like Earth Overshoot Day that focus the conversation on resource security,
- the Footprint Calculator, which is used for different engagement programs,
- the #MoveTheDate platform that invites people to declare publicly the solutions they admire,
- direct engagements with companies, cities and countries turning Footprint results into powerful decision tools.
