12.2.1 Material footprint (MF) and MF per capita, per GDP
Material Footprint (MF) is the attribution of global material extraction to domestic final demand of a country while the total MF is the sum of the material footprint for biomass, fossil fuels, metal ores and non-metal ores. This indicator is calculated as raw material equivalent of imports (RMEIM) plus domestic extraction (DE) minus raw material equivalents of exports (RMEEX). Multi-regional input-output (MRIO) framework is employed for the attribution of the primary material needs of final demand a global. The related work plan can be found on this document and the detailed methodology is shown in this document.
