eco-footprint
The Ecological Footprint is a tool for measuring and analysing human natural resource consumption and waste output within the context of nature’s renewable and regenerative capacity (or bio-capacity).

...Represents a quantitative assessment of the biologically productive area (the amount of nature) required to produce the resources (food, energy, and materials) and to absorb the wastes of an individual, city, region, or country.
