With our demand for food, feed, energetic and material use of biomass extensive land use is associated, both at home and abroad. This entails considerable environmental effects. Therefore, land use should be measured more in detail. In this research project, area based land footprint indicators of biomass consumption were further developed and calculated based on global data sets. The detailed results show the land footprint, broken down by origin, type and use, partly in time series. Central indicators are the cropland, grassland and forest land footprint. Furthermore a first approach was made to develop impact oriented footprint indicators.
