IMPACT

The Water Footprint of Food.

The concept of a water footprint was coined in 2002, by Arjen Hoekstra, Professor in water management at the University of Twente, Netherlands, and co-founder and scientific director of the Water Footprint Network. Water footprint is one of a family of ecological footprint indicators, which also includes carbon footprint and land footprint. Watch as we examine the impact agriculture has on the water footprint, and how we are working towards improving this key sustainability metric.
