You can't manage what you can't measure... 

The Ecological Footprint is the only scalable sustainability metric for individuals, governments, and businesses. 

ECOLOGICAL DEFICIT/RESERVE : 

An ecological deficit occurs when the Ecological Footprint of a population exceeds the biocapacityof the area available to that population. 

A national ecological deficit means that the nation is importing biocapacity through trade, liquidating national ecological assets or emitting carbon dioxide waste into the atmosphere. 

An ecological reserve exists when the biocapacity of a region exceeds its population's Ecological Footprint.
