  3. 3. Footprint By 2020, humanity’s global footprint falls below its 2000 level and continues its downward trend, specifically in the areas of: • energy/carbon footprint; • commodities (crops, meat, fish and wood) footprint; • water footprint. By 2050, humanity’s global footprint stays within the Earth’s capacity to sustain life and the natural resources of our planet are shared equitably. Biodiversity By 2020, biodiversity is protected and well managed in the world’s most outstanding natural places. By 2050, the integrity of the most outstanding natural places on earth is conserved, contributing to a more secure and sustainable future for all Foto: Peter Roberntz , WWF WWFs metagoals 2020 & 2050
