The Happy Planet Index (HPI) is an innovative index able to combine environmental impact with well-being to measure the environmental efficiency with which country by country, people live long and happy lives.
The HPI is best conceived as a measure of the environmental efficiency of supporting well-being in a given country. Indeed, it shows that doesn’t exist a reliably connection between increasing high levels of resource consumption and high levels of well-being but that it is possible to produce high well-being without excessive consumption of the Earth’s resources. It doesn’t reveal ‘happiest’ country in the world, but it is able to explain the relative efficiency with which nations can convert the planet’s natural resources into long and happy lives for their citizens. Such efficiency could emerge in a country with a medium environmental impact and very high well-being, but it could also emerge in a country with only mediocre well-being, but very low environmental impact.
