The pollution of import and export Ecological footprint (consumption) –Belgium8Ha/Person (15,5Ha) –Poland4,35Ha/Person (8,4Ha) –Hungary2,99Ha/Person (5,8Ha) Pollution per person (production) –Belgium9,9 Ton –Poland8,3 Ton –Hungary5,5 Ton
Conclusion Belgium consumes products that were made in other countries so we pollute the land of origin. Poland and Hungary have enough production to have as much food export as import..
Developing countries have an average footprint of 0,16 so also Poland and Hungary are not `green`!
Possible solutions We could stop the trade, BUT will there be enough diversity and enough production? Not for Belgium because…
