Quantifying the land footprint of Germany and the EU using a hybrid accounting model


Footprint analysis reveals the appropriation of land resources from a consumer’s perspective. This report presents a novel hybrid land-flow accounting method for the calculation of land footprints, employing a globally consistent top-down approach and combining physical with environmental-economic accounting. It delivers detailed results for cropland, grassland and forest land footprints for Germany and the EU28 for the years 1995 to 2010, broken down by origin, type and use.
