What is the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF)?

24 January 2020

Unlike a carbon footprint, which measures only one thing, an environmental footprint is a useful multi-indicator measure of your impacts. The PEF is a methodology created by the European Commission’s Joint Research Center (JRC) based on Life Cycle Assessment. Its goal is to provide ‘a common way of measuring environmental performance’ for companies within in EU wishing to market their product.
