A spatial solution to alleviate environmental impact of agriculture
Senior sustainability consultant Quantis
A sustainability consultant for 12 years, I have been driven by willingness to contribute to well-informed environmental decisions, based on comprehensive knowledge and the mass of accurate data available today. This is particularly true for the agricultural sector, a major contributor to ecosystem degradation and global warming.
Partnerships & Teamwork
Quantis is the project leader and core developer. Our partner, Cool Farm Alliance, provides expertise in farm-level footprint assessment and community management. It ensures IT bridges between geoFootprint and Cool Farm Tool, allowing for data exchange and facilitated analysis at both farm and regional levels. Arx-IT develops the front-end interface of the platform.
In June 2019, we showed our first beta version to our advisory board. Our long-standing idea was materialising in the form of beautiful maps. Reactions from our partners from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) were incredibly encouraging.
geoFootprint raises awareness of the inherent complexity of agricultural systems and potential solutions to make them more environmentally sustainable.
