By many measures, humans have shown themselves to be a pretty successful species. But we are living unsustainably. We are consuming more resources than the Earth can provide– we are in global ecological overshoot. The Ecological Footprint, developed by the Global Footprint Network, is a leading measure of human demand on nature, reflecting the productive area required to provide the renewable resources humanity is using and to absorb its waste. And this calculation show that every year we are effectively consuming the equivalent of 1.6 planets. In this podcast, Global Footprint Network co-founder Susan Burns talks about the power of ecological footprint- the impact of our increasing ecological deficit -and talks about her recent research integrating environment risk into sovereign credit analysis.
