The environmental footprints explorer
a database for global sustainable accounting



An open access forum to multi-regional input-output (MRIO) data, focussing on environmental footprints. This web-based database includes detailed results of key indicators from each of the MRIO models – EXIOBASE, WIOD, EORA, GTAP and OECD ICIO. Results include total environmental pressure; characterised by impact type; intensity of environmental pressure per unit economic output; multipliers of environmental pressure per unit economic final demand; footprints of final demand. All results are reported at a common classification to facilitate comparison

EU footprints

An investigation of European Union footprint at the sub-national level. Regional footprints reported for five environmental indicators and seven consumption categories.

Spatial footprints

The Footprints2.0 project aims to build links between environmental science and economics. We are developing data and software interfaces to connect environmental earth observation data with supply chain and econometric models.


The Environmental Footprints web-page collects data from multiple international databases and enables users to extract environmental information of countries and regions. To facilitate the data comparability, environmental accounts are provided in a standardised classification. In addition, the Environmental Footprints web-page includes various visualisations to illustrate the environmental impacts of countries with an in detail break down of EU regions. The results presented here only show output from considerable amount of work put into the original databases - so please cite and use the original data for your analysis. The results also utilise standardised classifications developed by others - see info and terms of use for full details
