How it works

With geoFootprint, you can easily understand the impacts of your sourcing decisions, identify what’s contributing to your footprint, and simulate interventions to reduce it.

Discover geoFootprint for yourself

Visualize crop production and environmental data

Select customized geographic areas from country level down to 10×10 km to view the footprint of a crop anywhere in the world.


Barley, cotton, maize, oil palm, peanut, potato, rapeseed, rice, rye, sorghum, soybean, sugar beet, sugarcane, sunflower and wheat


Yield, production volume, fertilizer application rates, soil type and characteristics, precipitation and more


Scope 3 impact indicators at the farm gate, on climate change, water availability, water quality, soil health and risk of biodiversity loss

2 Understand what’s driving your footprint

Identify and compare the main drivers of your environmental footprint, including irrigation, land-use change (deforestation) and field emissions from fertilizer use. See how field management practices, local soil and climate conditions, and upstream activities translate into environmental impacts.

3 Model interventions to identify solutions

Overwrite the input data to run your own customized simulations and gain unprecedented insights on the potential environmental risks and benefits of large-scale changes in cultivation and field management practices. Bridge supply-chain and farm-level assessments by integrating geoFootprint with the Cool Farm Tool.

4 View data sources and methodologies

At the heart of geoFootprint is a repository of publicly available geospatial data, as well as metrics from the World Food LCA Database, Cool Farm Tool and state-of-the-art agricultural emission models. We believe transparency is key to accelerating the transition to sustainable agriculture, so all data sources and methodologies for all computations and indicators are detailed in a third-party reviewed technical document.

geoFootprint promises to fulfill a valuable need for companies to better understand and ultimately to reduce their carbon footprints. The potential of the tool lies in combining spatially-detailed agricultural impacts with location-specific sourcing data.
