PEF T-shirts, latest news!
The 1st consultation phase of the T-shirts pilot ended March 28, 2014. This consultation aimed to gather comments and feedback from the stakeholders regarding the early stages of the European environmental footprint experiment.
A consultation meeting was held on Friday, March 14, 2014 in Brussels to present the work of the technical secretariat to the stakeholders (see photo). Around thirty organisations (federations, companies, associations) were present. The T-shirts pilot is held by Promod, Decathlon, Devernois, Pimkie and La Redoute (retailers), Teintures et Apprêts Danjoux (TAD) and Les Tissages de Charlieu (LTC) (manufacturers), the Federal Office for the Environment in Switzerland (FOEN) and the French Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy (MEDDE) (public authorities). The following items were submitted to consultation: study of the existing PCRs (Product Category Rules), scope of the T-shirts PEFCR (description of the product category, unit of analysis and reference flow), and definition of the representative product.
More to come …
Submitted comments will now be handled by the technical secretariat. The final version will be considered at the next PEF steering committee meeting scheduled May 19 and 20, 2014.
Three other consultation phases are planned for the next stages of the experiment. We invite you to join the consultation group (enterprises and especially SMEs); in order to do so, please contact this address: textile(at)cycleco.eu.
