The Happy Planet Index: an introduction

We are accustomed to comparing countires in terms of crude riches or 
what they trade. Some countries earn, or are given, reputations for 
music, sporting excellence, food, or as holiday destinations. There 
are international league tables for performance on a range of issues 
from corruption to football. This website introduces a measure of 
something more fundamental. It addresses the relative success or 
failure of countries in supporting good life for their citizens, 
whilst repecting the environmental resource limits upon which our 
lives depend.

The Happy Planet Index (HPI) is an innovative new measure that shows 
the ecological efficiency with which human well-being is delivered.
