Explanation: 这个用法现在很普遍，你的怀疑判断有道理，比如例句 strengthening our relationships with the communities where we operate, continuing to improve our product stewardship and innovation, and reducing our global footprint. 客户给我的解释是，由于工业化的足迹无所不在，因此减少这种足迹本身就是保护环境，而这种减少通过生产集中，适当减少经营场所占地(footprint)，这里的footprint可以是经营/生产场所/场地/厂区
