ELaR. An instrument for assessing strong sustainability in environmental planning - Within a perspective of ‘strong sustainability, a tool for aiding planners should be capable of quantifying resource withdrawal flows and waste emissions in relation to the various options on the table. It should also be able to assess the extent to which these dynamics increase or decrease the quantity of natural capital invested pro capita to provide exactly the same service (Daly, 1990). ELaR (Ecodynamic Land Register) is one such methodology propped up by specific integrated instruments. It tackles this problem by transforming the various design choices into quantities of incoming and outgoing flows to and from the registered parcel of land occupied by the building. Structuring of the information in this way facilitates design choices oriented towards creting short and environmentally compatible production and consumption chains.

Keywords: Ecological footprint; accounting of CO2 emissions; strong sustainability.
