Living well requires a healthy Planet
Planetary Accounting is a framework that translates global environmental challenges into actionable targets at any scale. Our mission is to make Planetary Accounting easy to access, easy to use, and easy to understand.
The Planetary Accounting Network (PAN) uses this scientifically-rigorous framework to simplify and contextualise complex environmental data to enable people, businesses, and governments to make the decisions needed to return to the planet’s limits.
Our approach is unique because it can support and (crucially) connect vastly different types and scales of action, with potential applications ranging from individual behaviour change to strategic business operations, regional planning, or international negotiations.
WHAT WE DO
PAN is a not-for-profit network of organisations with a shared aim of helping the planet return to, and remain in, a safe operating space.
PAN's overarching mission is to educate people on the Planetary Boundaries and Planetary Accounting, helping anyone from individuals, to global organisations, to governments, apply Planetary Accounting, using Planetary Science Based Targets.
Research/updating the framework
Creating methodologies - PARC’s framework
We undertake ongoing research to advance the Planetary Accounting framework and keep it current with the latest environmental data.
Tools & Resources
We develop tools and applications that make it easy to use Planetary Accounting across a variety of scales, industries, and use cases.
"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."
