A general-reader overview of how spatial footprinting methods can be useful to businesses and governments by linking satellite, and other remote-sensed environmental data, to specific economic decisions.
This paper was widely covered in the press, including by National Geographic, Scientific American, TIME, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Discover Magazine, AFP (in several languages), Le Monde, FAZ, El Mundo, and many others.
This paper published in Nature was widely covered in the press, including by Scientific American, BBC, Reuters, Le Monde, AFP, and many national magazines and newspapers. Edgar Hertwich wrote a nice commentary about the paper.
This study found that 29–39% of emissions from deforestation (0.65Gt CO2) are driven by international trade, mainly in beef and oilseeds. One sixth of the carbon footprint of EU diets is due to deforestation emissions.
We argued that research on sustainable diets needs to give more attention to non-mainstream foods. The top commodity crops are well-measured and well reported on, but smallholder crops and artisenal fisheries are often neglected in big-picture studies about sustinable diets.
In this study we estimated the Scope 3 carbon footprint of 13,000 cities globally, drawing on both existing models and expanding coverage to new countries. The study was reported on in Scientific American, National Geographic, US News and World Report, among others. Project website: citycarbonfootprints.info
This paper was discussed in a special report by The Economist about what individuals and companies can do to reduce their Scope 3 emissions.
