Between January 2002 andJanuary 2005 a partnershipincluding Cardiff Council, theBRASS Research Centre atCardiff University and StockholmEnvironment Institute worked ona project to measure the city’sEcological Footprint.As a result of this work,summarised in this document,we now have a clear idea of theecological impact that Cardiff’sresidents have on the globalenvironment.The Ecological Footprint studyhas demonstrated that Cardiff,like most cities in the developedworld is clearly living beyondits means. The report highlightswhere our consumption patternsare having the most effect on thefinite resources of the planet.The ecological footprint givesdecision makers ideas about howto manage and minimise theseimpacts as Cardiff develops.This research challengesevery citizen, household andorganisation in Cardiff to look atmore intelligent ways of usingour natural resources to limit our impacts on our increasingly fragileworld.It can help us all to plan how wecan live more sustainably in thefuture and in greater balance withour one and only earth.
