|Users can also view - in detail - the impact of product categories for housing, transport, food, goods and services.
The EUREAPA Tool measures such impact using the footprint family of indicators – 6 land types makes up the Ecological footprint, the major Greenhouse Gases contribute to the carbon footprint and blue, green and grey water make up the water footprint.
To compare the relative impact of global citizens, the data can be viewed at a per person level so that for example the tool can provide more information on the impact of a particular product bought by UK consumers. Individual country impacts can be seen in more detail including consumption impact from specific goods. For example the supply chain impacts of “leather goods” in the UK can be traced back to the production sector “bovine cattle, sheep, goats and horses” over in China.
Finally, the EUREAPA tool can be used to not only find information and evidence to lobby government, but also a policy maker will be able to use the tool to show the resulting changes in impact under a number of future scenarios.
