Products’ environmental footprint at the European level
To help companies and consummers navigate the green maze, the European Commission is proposing EU-wide methods to measure the environmental performance of products and organisations, and encouraging Member States and the private sector to take them up. These methods aim to facilitate better information on the environmental performance of products and organizations.
The launch of a three-years European Experiment of Products Environmental Footprint was confirmed. In particular, it will focus the development of European sectoral reference criteria, test verification procedures and communication.
