The third global Happy Planet Index (HPI) report reveals that this is largely still an unhappy planet, with both high and low-income countries facing many challenges on their way to meeting the same overall goal sustainable well-being for all. But it also demonstrates that good lives do not have to cost the Earth, that the countries where well-being is highest are not always the ones that have the biggest environmental impact. The HPI is one of the first global measures of sustainable well-being. It uses global data on experienced well-being, life expectancy, and Ecological Footprint to generate an index revealing which countries are most efficient at producing long, happy lives for their inhabitants, whilst maintaining the conditions for future generations to do the same.
