WP2: Footprint Family Technical Report: Integration into MRIO Model
A footprint family was defined as a set of consumption based indicators to account for
environmental burdens imposed by human society on the environment (Galli et al.
2011), allocating environmental impacts occurring in the production chain to the final use
of the products.
The following report is intended for all researchers and academics as well as others
interested in the potentials, limitations and theoretical background of environmentally
extended MRIO analysis focusing on Carbon, Ecological and Water Footprints. It should
also serve as a basis for the EUREAPA tool, which is built on the described model.
