Why geoFootprint?

To tackle the environmental crisis, we need better data for better decision making about agriculture supply chains.

Today, agriculture and forestry together account for over 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions and are major drivers of soil and ecosystem degradation.

As companies set ambitious targets to address their impact on nature, they face significant supply chain management data challenges. Environmental data for agricultural production systems can be incomplete, inconsistent or too generic to meaningfully identify hot spots and evaluate interventions.

geoFootprint eases the burden of manually collecting and analyzing sustainability metrics by displaying the best sources of publicly-available environmental and crop production data on an intuitive and interactive online world map, delivering granular visibility — down to 10×10 km! — that yields sharper insights for strategic decision-making.
