What is Ecological Footprint?

We want to meet our needs such as survival, food, shelter and heating before the day we exist. In order to meet our basic needs, some consumptions are provided to meet our needs. Some situations that have deteriorated or deteriorated in the last period do not go unnoticed. Unfortunately, the balances of the ecosystem have been disturbed by the increasing population and industrialization. ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT has been created in order to calculate the amount needed to recalculate this disturbed balance and restore it to the ecosystem as much as we can.

The demands of the society we live in and what the ecosystem can meet in this area are calculated with this service. Animal foods, plant foods, forest products, materials such as wood, wood and timber consumed by the people and the communities in which they are taken into consideration in the calculation of the demands, the infrastructure of the country, the prevalence of vehicle use in the society and accordingly carbon dioxide emission measurements. The resource calculation, on the other hand, is the biological capacity of the city in which it lives, the areas covered by the forests, the agricultural lands, the lands in the livestock area and the settled lands. It represents all the land in the production area and the land in the sea areas.

To explain the ecological footprint very clearly and briefly; Based on the resources demanded by individuals from nature, the number of these products in the world, which is needed in nature for the future, is calculated within the scope of sustainability, which may be encountered with the deterioration of the natural balance. Not only in our country, but also in the whole world, industrialization is developing and with the rapid spread of technology, the activities in consumption have increased at great values. Consumption demands are constantly received from natural resources and these demands continue to grow uncontrollably. For a more livable world, the importance of sustainability should be reached by every individual and every company.

With the ecological footprint, there will be a reduction in the damage to nature and it will be possible to carry out the necessary studies in order to produce solutions large enough to be destroyed as much as possible. In order for the productive natural area to become widespread, we must make changes in our eating habits, make changes in our lifestyle choices, keep our waste amounts under control and always be informed about the natural balance.

As Ekol Certification, we will review your production and consumption habits, both individually and institutionally, with the ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT CONSULTANCY service you will receive from us.


The calculation formula for Ekol Certification´s Ecological Footprint is as follows:

Ecological Footprint (ha*) = Consumption x Production Area x Population

*Ha: Hectares = 10,000 m²


When we look at the ecological footprint, we know that it consists of 6 different components. The first of these is the carbon footprint. Other components that follow the carbon footprint are forest footprint, grassland footprint, fishing footprint, footprints of structured areas, and agricultural land footprint.

Reducing the Ecological Footprint

The most important headings to reduce the ecological footprint are as follows;

* The factor in the usability of water areas and the importance of water
* Possibility of balanced use of all natural resources
* Increasing energy production and making improvements

* The importance of recycling and its more widespread place in our lives
