Enabling A future within Ecological limits

The Planetary Accounting Network (PAN) is a not-for-profit, with a purpose to help people, organisations, and governments determine how to operate within global environmental limits - the Planetary Boundaries.

Living well requires a healthy Planet

At the Planetary Accounting Network, we are passionate about using environmental data to inspire and enable every person to play their role as kaitiaki (guardians) for our planet. Whether you are a business leader, a government official, or an individual wanting to know how you can make an impact, we are here to help.

Beyond Carbon

Planetary Accounting builds on the principles of carbon accounting and science-based targets, enabling assessment of broader, nature-related impacts such as biodiversity loss, water consumption, waste generation, and pollution. Planetary Accounting goes beyond environmental impact assessments such as life-cycle assessments. It is about quantifying what is needed to achieve a nature-positive, regenerative future; a future within global environmental limits and tipping points - called the Planetary Boundaries. 


Planetary Accounting can be used to quantify the environmental performance of individuals and communities, products and services, organisations, cities, regions, and nations.

"I read your article about planetary accounting and the first time in years I feel heard...We would love to build a new narrative -  that sustainability means to act within the planetary boundaries and not to be less evil than the status quo."

- Elisa Naranjo, Einhorn.
