Organizations behind the One-Planet Alliance

The One-Planet Alliance is a central initiative of FoDaFo – the Footprint Data Foundation. In essence, FoDaFo executes the mission of the One-Planet Alliance. It is the independent international organization behind the Alliance that owns and governs the National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts. FoDaFo‘s purpose is to provide robust and transparent ecological accounts that estimate the amount of biocapacity that countries demand, and the amount of biocapacity available. These accounts are maintained in collaboration with an international research network and are made possible through the support of the One-Planet Alliance. The One-Planet Alliance enables FoDaFo to make the Footprint and biocapacity accounts ever more reliable, accessible and relevant.

FoDaFo and its One-Planet Alliance were brought into existence by:
