Ecological Footprint of City of Melbourne Residents, Shoppers and Businesses
City of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria, 2013
Life Cycle Strategies were commissioned by the City of Melbourne with ARUP consulting to undertake an Ecological Footprint for City of Melbourne. The ecological footprint was developed using environmentally extended input output LCA talking into account the consumption patterns of residents, workers and visitors to the city. The project provided a roadmap for engaging the community to take personal action on reducing their own footprint, and a strategy for on-going monitoring of reducing the ecological footprint of activities in the city.
