ecological footprint

After China and USA, India has the third largest ecological footprint in the world, according to a report released.

China’s share of ecological footprint, which is a measure humanity’s demand on the planet, is a massive 19 %, followed by USA’s 13.7 % and India at 7.1 %, The Living Planet Report 2014 said. The top five countries, which includes Brazil and Russia, make up about half the global total.

“Humanity currently needs the regenerative capacity of 1.5 earths to provide the ecological goods and services we use each year,” the report brought out by WWF and Global Footprint Network said.
