Environmental Footprint (EF) Consulting

We support you in your environmental footprint efforts.

Create Transparency and Credibility in Environmental Performance

The Environmental Footprint (EF) is an initiative of the European Commission, establishing a common methodological approach for quantifying the environmental performance of any product or service (Product Environmental Footprint – PEF) and organizations (Organisation Environmental Footprint – OEF) throughout its lifecycle.

Detect risks specific to your industry by using EF as a measuring tool for environmental, compliance and other hotspots and make better strategic decisions based on standardized and robust methodology.

Our Consulting Will Help You:

  • Develop new PEFCRs (Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules) and OEFSR (Organisation Environmental Footprint Sector Rules) so you can calculate a PEF or OEF.
  • Develop Environmental Footprint data for calculating existing LCAs and EPDs using the current PEF and OEF indicators and impact categories.
    Identify the impacts and hotspots of your operations and products with PEF and OEF.
  • Conduct shadow studies to test PEFCR development and PEF calculations before going public.
  • Harmonize existing PEFs & PEFCRs and OEF & OEFSRs.
  • Communicate your needs with the European Commission and manage organizational and informal aspects around your PEF and OEF requirements.
  • Find the right industry partners or NGOs with support for establishing, managing or joining a Technical Secretariat during the EF Transition Phase.
  • Integrate EF results into circular economy schemes or material and substance declarations.
