Abstract:

Background: The aim of the considerations is to present the concept of the ecological footprint of logistic support for a rescue operation on the example of a natural disaster. Increasing pressure of environmental requirements placed on all logistic activities, including logistic support, justifies the attention drawn to the subject.

Methods: Selecting a natural disaster – as a reference for the concept of the ecological footprint – constitutes an attempt to draw attention to the fact that logistic support for a rescue operation in the case of a natural disaster – apart from an unquestionably positive role – also negatively affects the environment, which should be exposed, and this will be manifested by creation of measuring and analysing instruments necessary within undertaken activities aimed at minimalization of the negative impact of logistic support on the environment. The ecological footprint can be considered to be such an instrument.

Results: Based on the general formula of the ecological footprint and its methodology presented in “Working Guidebook to the National Footprint Accounts 2014”, a formula of the ecological footprint of logistic support for a rescue operation on the example of a natural disaster was created.

Conclusions: The assumptions of the concept of the ecological footprint of logistic support for a rescue operation on the example of a natural disaster were based on the assumptions of logistic support for a rescue operation and on the assumptions of the resource concept and external costs of logistic support for a rescue operation on the example of a natural disaster.
